Game viewing in Saadani is variable. It can be excellent with elephants on the beach and lions by the river or you can drive for a while just seeing waterbuck and warthogs. In our experience spending two nights in Saadani is the best option.

Saadani is a good linking destination if you are visiting both North and South Tanzania. It combines well with Usambara and Mikumi
