Saadani Safari Lodge

Saadani National Park Tanzania
  • Saadani Safari Lodge

    Beach, bush and river come together in a clash of colourful ecosystems found nowhere else on the eastern coast of Africa. Saadani Safari Lodge is owned by Costa Coucoullis, a passionate nature-lover who has fully renovated and refurbished an existing property with creative style and sympathy to the natural environment.

    The uniqueness of this safari lodge is its proximity to such a mix of different ecosystems. From the delights of the Wami River where a stone's throw from the open sea, you can be boating past pods of hippo, the lodge also offers game driving and bush walking to explore the plentiful wildlife in the natural bush. Out at sea, a sand island is a lovely spot for picnics and snorkelling in warm tropical waters.

    Please note that it is not recommended to bring children below the age of 6.

    Saadani Safari Lodge


    The nine tented cottages with their cool grass roofs are strung along the beach. Each has its own veranda and pretty en-suite bathroom.

    The Classic Bandas are based on colonial style tents with traditional makuti roofs to protect from the unrelenting sun. Unpretentious and intimate the nine bandas are strung along the beach, cooled by the soft ocean breeze and shaded by Caserina trees. Rooms come with either twin or double beds and 'Al Fresco' day beds outside on the private verandas. Sleep out under the stars with the gentle lap of the waves and cooling breeze from the ocean to lull you to sleep. A plethora of bird's call to watch the sun majestically rise from the ocean with a burst of brilliant colour.

    The Maridadi Suites are raised on small stilts to capture the oceans gentle breath and all have been positioned around and between indigenous floras that typifies the Saadani region. All the suites have en-suite facilities with hot and cold water and electricity generated by capturing the immense power of the sun's rays. A private courtyard garden with outdoor shower completes the suite allowing guests that most joyful of privileges, a hot shower under a carpet of stars.

    The Siri Suite is the ultimate reflection of beach and bush luxury accommodation. Set raised on the brow of a sand dune, the suite commands imperial views over both the Indian Ocean and National park. Originally designed to track the passing of the sun, the suite glows with the radiance of both rising and setting sun. The suite is set apart allowing unparalleled privacy for those who seek solitude and tranquillity. Private bar and pool refresh guests throughout the day and with a small deck on the back of the room for sundowners over the park, there is really no need to leave the room, especially if you choose to eat in house.
