Mount Kilimanjaro: Kilimanjaro represents a powerful life force for the local Chagga people and all those who have made their lives around this mountain, providing rich volcanic soils for agriculture and an endless source of pure spring waters.
One of the most amazing aspects of the mountain in the present day is the accessibility of its peak to climbers with no mountain climbing equipment or real previous experience of scaling such heights.
Saadani National Park
Saadani Game Reserve was gazetted in 1964, covering an area of some 250 sq km from the Wami river in the south to the Mligaji river in the north, with the Moshi railway line as the western boundary. In 2003 Saadani was upgraded to become Tanzania’s latest National Park.
Saadani also sits almost directly opposite Zanzibar’s Stone Town, located approximately 42 kms away. Flights from Zanzibar to Saadani take just 15 minutes.
The combination of beach and big game is unique in Tanzania. Large game currently seen include giraffe, buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard, sable antelope, eland, hartebeest, wildebeest, zebra, waterbuck, crocodiles, hippos and many more including a variety of birdlife. Dolphins are sometimes seen offshore and whales pass through the Zanzibar channel on their migration.
