Simply Saadani Camp
Simply Saadani, formerly A Tent With a View, was the first camp in Saadani back in 1995 so knowledge of the park is extensive. The camp is a unique combination of barefoot luxury and wild African adventure. It lies just beyond the boundary of the Saadani National Park, with indigenous bush to one side and a beautiful white sandy beach to the other.
The lodge is surrounded by the park to the north, south and west with the marine park to the east. It is the only park in the whole of East Africa to offer a unique combination of bush and beach in one destination.
Location of Simply Saadani Camp
A 3.5 hour drive north of Dar es Salaam on the Mkwaja coastline.
Facilities at Simply Saadani Camp
The bar and restaurant area is on stilts overlooking the sea, and is spacious and well-designed, using natural materials to blend with the natural environment, and it is completely solar powered. Each night delicious five course dinners are served, with the emphasis on seafood, freshly caught and cooked.
Activities available include walking safaris, full and half-day game drives, boat safaris combined with full-day safaris, birdwatching by canoe; if you prefer to stay at the lodge, or you can simply relax on the beach.
