Saadani also sits almost directly opposite Zanzibar’s Stone Town, located approximately 42 kilometers away. Flights from Zanzibar to Saadani take just 15 minutes.
The east coast of Africa has a long and rich cultural history and Saadani has always been at the center. It was first mentioned in writings by Indian traders in the sixth century AD and has been an important trading area for much of the last millennium.
Saadani is dominated by acacia woodland and coastal thickets. It also protects a large area of mangrove swamps along the coastline north from the Wami River, and includes several species of palm including the mysterious looking 'walking palm', which is not actually a palm at all!
Dolphins are sometimes seen offshore and whales pass through the Zanzibar channel on their migration. Of particular interest is the green turtle project at Madete Marine Reserve. This endangered species is under particular threat from fishing practices offshore from Saadani and a conservation project has been established to help protect both turtles and their eggs.
