Largely undiscovered and unspoilt, the Tanzania coast is fast catching the attention of travellers looking to enjoy lovely beaches, coral reefs and ancient ports far from the madding crowd.
A hundred kilometres north of Dar es Salaam, Saadani is Tanzania’s newest national park, a conservation area blessed with diverse wildlife and one of East Africa’s last protected coastal regions.
Here you can explore the lowland coastal forest, encounter big game on the savannah, watch myriad resident and migratory birds, observe dolphins in the ocean and hippo pods, lazy crocs, pelicans and flamingos on the river.
All at the same time as enjoying accommodation that suits the area.
To the north and south of Dar there are lovely lodges on quiet, unspoilt bays and promontories, surrounded by the clear blue waters of the ocean.
