Our second visit to Saadani Safari Lodge, heaven on earth and planning the next visit.
As you open the door of your bungalow you are greeted with a morning view of the sun rising over the Indian Ocean. The golden sands are so fine they tickle your toes as you walk along the deserted beach finding animal footprints. You are in the Saadani National Park.
At the rear of your bungalow the bush with game drives available to see wild life such as lions, elephants, leopard and more whilst having a nature lesson about the bush, birds and insects. This is apart from the animals who frequently visit the lodge’s water hole.
With sea or river safaris, village and bush walks to do the days disappear too quickly.
All of the staff going above and beyond. We would like to call them all friends after our 6 night stay, June 2014. They all work to make your stay enjoyable and a memorable.
Saadani managers, Graeme and Candy, constantly strive to ensure the guests every whim is catered for. They and their happy team succeed in every way and always with a smile. We cannot thank them all enough for all the thrills and fun we had as guests in the lodge.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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 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. ... more less
