I can not recommend Tent With A View Saadani enough. I can not think of a single fault. The location is stunning, the hospitality and attention to detail surpassed anywhere else I have been. The National Park is beautiful. Every single person is working it seems just to make your stay perfect. The tented bandas where you stay are luxurious. Food was superb. A special mention goes to Natalia who runs the lodge with expertise, generosity and has a huge passion to really live life. Also to our guide, Francis, whose knowledge of the National Park, its wildlife from the minutiae to the massive was outstanding, he made sure everyday was full of wonder. If you want to go on safari, where there are no crowds, no problems and days full of magic, go here.
