Recently, while traveling to Saadani National Park, our family visited the Saadani Lodge to inquire about accommodations. Upon arrival, we were shocked by the negative attitude given to us by the manager. He did not offer a tour of the facilities and it was obvious...More

Dear Barbara, It is with sadness and disappointment that we read your review. However we do thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. Regrettably walk in site inspections are not normal lodge operating protocols especially during high season periods. All...More

I had a wonderful stay at Sanctuary. The rooms are big, spacious and there are even outside showers. The concept of going on a game drive of river safari and afterwards relaxing in front of your rooms on the beach - wow. Birdlife is great...More

There are 5 Maridadi Suites at Saadani Safari Lodge. Meaning 'elegant' in Swahili, these beautiful suites are appropriately named. Raised on small stilts and surrounded by indigenous floras, the decks provide an ...More excellent viewing platform of the expansive sea. The roofs are covered in traditional thatching and floors are made from striking teak wood. All suites have en-suite bathrooms with a private outdoor shower for those who wish to enjoy a hot shower under a ceiling of stars. Meaning 'secret' in Swahili, our Siri Suite is the only one of its kind and offers the ultimate luxury for our guests. With inspiring views of the ocean, Saadani National Park and the sandy beach on the doorstep, this suite is set apart from all others. A private bar and pool provides unparalleled privacy, combined with private dining and sundowners on the small deck. This suite is perfect for honeymooners who wish for an incomparable experience. The lodge features nine colonial styled and intimate Banda Suites strung along the beach and cooled by the soft Ocean breeze. Six of the rooms are feature king beds while the remaining three are twin rooms. All rooms feature swathes of cotton cloth adorning the ceilings, large romantic Zanzibar style nets, locally carved furniture and incredible views over the ocean. A plethora of bird's calls will act as your alarm call to watch the sun majestically rise from the Ocean with a burst of brilliant colour. The classic Banda's have a private Makuti (coconut leaf) shaded deck area directly on the beach complete with locally made sunbeds and mattress - the perfect spot to soak up the surrounding scenery.
