Hotels and Lodges > Eastern Circuit

SAADANI SAFARI LODGE
Saadani Safari Lodge is small and intimate, with just nine individual tented cottage set along the beach, cooled by soft ocean breezes and shade by casherina trees.

Cottage are twin or double with swathes of sail cloth adoming the ceiling, large romantic Zanzibar style nets and locally carved furniture. Each is fully ensuite. (Hot and cold running water) and has an unrestricted view onto the ocean with a full-length veranda. 

KISAMPA TANZANIA – Saadani
Kisampa is set in a pristine, wild area in Eastern Tanzania.

Kisampa is 100km north of Dar es Salaam and 66 km directly west of Zanzibar and adjoins Saadani National Park to the north east and has the perennial Wami River as its southern boundary.

Kisampa has ox-bow lakes, riverine forests, open grassland, wild rolling hills and steep ridges that provide breathtaking views of the surrounding areas. The diverse habitat makes it a birders paradise. Wildlife is shy but increasing with the protection now provided in the sanctuary.

In no other location on the East African coast can you potentially snorkel on a coral reef, watch turtles hatch out of their nest, indulge in a river boat safari in the tidal Wami River, walk in the Zaraninge coastal rain forest and partake in a coastal savannah game drive - all in the same day and all in one National Park.

Kisampa and Saadani National Park’s unique variety of ecosystems is both their beauty and their charm and allows massive diversity of animal, bird and plant life.

Despite ample birdlife and plenty of primates, large wildlife is quite shy so if you haven’t seen the big five – best you do so before coming to Kisampa.

Throughout the lodge, emphasis is on relaxation and appreciation of the natural environment, which we hope is reflected in the thoughtful design of the Saadani accommodation and restaurant bar areas. Guests can relax in one of our two bars with a choice of cold beers, cocktails or maybe an inviting gin & tonic before settling down to a mouth watering evening meal.
