Saadani Safari Camp

022 277 3294; 0748 585401;;

This small and intimate tented camp, which runs attractively along a palmfringed
beach about 1km north of Saadani village, has undergone a major facelift over the last couple of years, most notably with the addition of a swimming pool. Accommodation is in comfortable framed canvas tents with a makuti roof, en-suite facilities, solar electricity and twin or dbl bed, as well as a second netted bed on the balcony should you want to sleep outside. The open wooden bar and dining area is very peaceful, while a treehouse overlooks a waterhole regularly visited by waterbuck, bushbuck, buffalo and various waterbirds – and very occasionally by lion and elephant. Activities include game drives, guided walks with a ranger, and boat trips on the river.

US$290/500 sgl/dbl FB inc one activity per day. A honeymoon rate of US$300 pp includes a private candlelit dinner and wine.

This is another small camp, built a couple of years ago along a pretty beach set about 30km north of Saadani village near Mkwaja, an area regarded to be the best in the park for elephant sightings. The camp consists of 8 standing tents on stilted wooden platforms spaced out in the coastal scrub immediately behind the beach. It offers a similar range of guided activities to Saadani Safari Camp, while several short self-guided walking trails emanate from the camp, and you can canoe in the
nearby Mafuwe Creek.

FB US$255/350 sgl/dbl; inc all activities and park fees US$355/550.
