overview

Set in a horse-shoe bay, where the Saadani National Park meets the Indian Ocean, this lodge offers a unique blend of diversely beautiful ecosystems. Saadani Safari Lodge brings together beach, river and bush landscapes and is perfect for those in need of a secluded, nature-filled retreat. Enjoy game drives in open 4x4 vehicles to spot lion, hippo and other plain game of Saadani or bush walks to appreciate the surrounding vegetation.

The lodge is set at the Wami River Mouth and a boat safari on this river is highly recommended. Saadani is also very focused on uplifting the local community and a walk through one of the nearby villages will give you a chance to learn about these active projects.

At Saadani, seafood is the main speciality - in particular the feasts of fresh prawns that are brought from the sea to the lodge kitchens daily. Indulge in these and many other delicious meals on the lower deck, enjoying beautiful views over the ocean and surrounds. Lunch and dinner are always thoughtfully prepared, 3-course meals and can be enjoyed on the sand island just off the coast for a romantic evening. Saadani is able to cater for a variety of dietary requirements.

Classic Banda

The Maridadi Suites are situated a little away from the classic bandas and offer three individual suites and one family suite. Maridadi means 'elegant' in Swahili and the suites feature beautiful, organic design and are constructed using grass collected in the local village. The beds are more contemporary looking and made of chunky dhow wood. Each suite has an additional desk, sitting area and outdoor courtyard shower room.

The Siri Suite is ideal for romantics and honeymooners and can only be reached via a private walkway over a dry river bed. Siri means 'secret' in Swahili and the suite definitely offers ultimate privacy and minimal disturbance.

Romantics in the Siri Suite can be collected by boat from the private beach and taken on a private excursion to the Wami River and the small coral garden, or on a private safari in the National Park.
