Saadani National Park
Saadani is a newly visited park in Tanzania despite the fact that it was officially recognized as a Game Reserve more than thirty years ago. Located about 60 km from Bagamoyo town, Saadani appears small but really rich in natural vegetation, insects, swamps, coral reefs, wild and birdlife.
In the 1960's when the government declared Saadani a Game Reserve, it only covered 200 sq km but it has expanded to 1200 sq km. Saadani Game Reserve is home to lions, Zebras, warthogs, giraffes, elephants, leopards, hartebeests and hyenas.
Large flocks of flamingos, Senegal plover, African hawk eagles, wood sandpiper, African spoonbills, yellow-billed, sand plover, black-winged stilt and little-spotted woodpeckers can be found in this game reserve. How about a dawn tour to the forests in Saadani for varieties of birds sound listening!
