Simply Saadani lies between the Indian Ocean and the Saadani bush in an old coconut plantation. It's a bush and beach combination in a really wild, remote spot. 

The 11 en-suite bandas are perched on stilts along the beach and offer total privacy. Each has a large balcony overlooking the sea complete with chairs and a hammock. The bands are made from recycled natural materials and have solar power. 

The restaurant and bar is elevated on stilts and overlooks the sea. This is where you'll come to chat about the day's activity (or lack of it!), enjoy some good food, and have a drink as the sun sets over Africa. Dinner can also be eaten on the beach if you wish.

There are several nature trails around the lodge with great bird watching, and guided canoe rides in the mangrove swamps. The lodge arranges full and halfday game drives in Saadani National Park and boat trips on the Wami River. The lodge is involved in several conservation projects and guests are encouraged to visit the Saadani Wildlife Research Station which is on site. 

When it is high tide the sea is very close to the tents, and it's shallow and warm and great for swimming. However please note that it goes quite a long way out at low tide so, depending on the tides, you can't guarantee the sea being on your doorstep.
