Full Day Bush Meets the Beach Safari from Zanzibar

Only €290

Join us for a thrilling day full of water taxi rides and 4×4 game drives in this off-the-beaten track corner of Eastern Tanzania where “bush meets the beach”. Saadani stands out as the only national park where the untamed wilderness seamlessly blends with pristine sandy shores. Imagine the extraordinary spectacle of lions leisurely strolling along the beach, offering a rare sight that beautifully combines the majesty of wildlife with the tranquility of the ocean. This small enchanting park provides an opportunity to witness the harmony of nature in a setting where land and ocean converge.

Day 1: Zanzibar – Saadani National Park – Zanzibar

  • Activities: Motor Boat Ride; Game Drive; Picnic lunch

Start your day from an early morning drive from your hotel in Zanzibar to Kendwa Beach or to Hotel Verde (at Marina), where our water taxi awaits.

As the sun ascends, our high-speed boat transports you directly to Saadani National Park in just an hour, setting the stage for an extraordinary day of exploration. Upon arrival, start your game drive with our expert wildlife guide. 

Saadani National Park is home to a variety of animals, including giraffes, hippos, waterbucks, warthogs, and more. Keep an eye out for occasional sightings of zebras, wildebeests, buffalos, and even elephants. While lions, hyenas, cheetahs, and leopards are rarely seen, the thrill of the chase adds an extra layer of excitement to this experience. 

Take a break midday for a bush lunch. Then continue your adventure with the game drive until late afternoon. Weather permitting, we will go to the picturesque River Wami picnic site – an ideal spot for observing hippos and crocodiles, providing a unique photo opportunity.

As the day winds down, board our water taxi once again, cruising back to Zanzibar while witnessing the breathtaking African sunset. Arriving in Zanzibar after sunset, you’ll be transferred back to your hotel, concluding a day filled with wildlife encounters and stunning scenery.
