We came with our own car from Bagamoyo for 2 days trip. It took us 3 hours to reach the hotel by crossing the Saadani National Park. The hotel is 6km north to the Madete Entrance Gate of the park. The hotel is perfect, we were few guests only one family and us. Traveling with 2 babies 18 months and 4 months, all the staff was there to help for each and every need!
The first day we decided to stay at the hotel lying on the beach but the staff told us that lions have been seen in the park so we took the car and 20mn later we were observing 3 lionesses. We then spent the afternoon on the beach! Really unique!
Dinner is very nice with 5 courses very original and tasty. During the night the sky is crazy full of stars as there is no light around! Waking up in the morning with the sound of the waves and the birds is a must. Coming back to Dar Es Salaam we stopped for a 2 hours boat safari organized by the hotel: hippos, crocodiles, birds by hundreds! Our trip was too short but really amazing. Thanks again to the all the staff. I am sure we will come back soon!
