This very young park, which was founded around the year 2000, is situated on the eastern coast of Tanzania, opposite to Zanzibar. With a little luck one can see elephants, buffalos or even lions on the shores of the Indian Ocean.
One will not see as many animals as in the other parks but the landscape of this national park is fascinating with its Borassus palm tress, Doum palm trees, typical coastal acacias and mangroves. The most northern population of the Roosevelt sable antelope are found here. It’s the only park where one can combine game viewing with beaching.
