Saadani Safari

Saadani National Park Safari (3 Days/2 Nights)

All safari profits are used for Art in Tanzania community programs in Tanzania. 2020-2021 our main focus is on the Corporate Social Responsibility programs we run in coalition with Tanzanian corporations. This program has practical field efforts and advocacy work in Environmental, Social, and Human rights fields.

Saadani National Park is just 2 hours north of Dar es Salaam and situated on the coast of Tanga, an ideal place to combine relaxation on the beach and wildlife watching.

Saadani is the only national park combining marine, terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems. Park was established in 2005 when former Saadani Game Reserve, Zaraninge Forest, and Mkwaja Cattle Ranch were combined into a national park.
