One of the only places on earth where you can watch elephants and lions during the day and then relax on the beach in the evening, Saadani National Park offers a unique opportunity to observe both Africa's land-dwelling animals and its diverse marine life.

If the idea of seeing herds of elephants playing on the beach doesn't enchant you enough, the park also offers the chance to explore the ruins of Saadani, a former European port settlement that has since reverted to a much humbler settlement.
