Both marine and mainland flora can be found within the national
park and features a wealth of wildlife of about 30 species of
larger mammals as well as many reptiles and birds. The ocean nearby
is also home to many species of fish, dolphins and humpback whale.
Depending on the time of year guests visit Saadani National park
they will see different wildlife activity. Between December and
March there is increasing activity around the waterholes because of
the recent short rains. From June to September it is the
coolest time of the year when it is best for spotting hippo and
crocodile in the bordering Wami River. Forest walk and game drives
are full of wildlife activity at this time of year. Buffalo are
predominantly visible in October and November and the migratory
birds start to arrive. This is also when the flowers start to grow
in the parched landscape after some light rains.
