The Tana River
The 708 km Tana River flows through Garissa and Garsen before branching into a huge delta as it enters the Indian Ocean, south of Lamu. Along the last 65 kilometers of its course it has a broad floodplain, and the reserve extends for about 36 km of this course.

 

Relics of an Ancient Forest, the Last Home of Two Endangered Primates
The Tana River Primate Reserve, which is known to the local people as Mchelelo, was formed to protect two endangered species of monkey; the crested mangabey and the Tana River red colobus.

 

It is also one of the last remaining relics of the once massive Central African Lowland Rainforest, but became isolated from the rest of the forest during the seismic eruptions that caused the formation of the Rift Valley.

 

As a result, much of the reserve's flora and fauna are unusual to East Africa and bear traces of ancient links to the Congo Basin forests of the Miocene period.

 

To help preserve this wonderfully unique environment, "The Lower Delta Conservation Trust" has been founded and Delta Dunes lodge is one of its partners, just as the Trust is a partner of the Lodge. For each night spent at the Lodge, a contribution is made to the Community and to the Trust.

 

The Lodge works in close contact with two local communities, the Orma and Pokomo native tribes, whose members help, preserve this delicate ecosystem. The Orma are of Ethiopian descent and are herdsmen, while the Pokomo are farmers and fishermen.

 

Their womenfolk produce splendid handcrafted objects using the leaves of palm trees. The Pokomo also guard the Ozi Forest on the main river, which is a sanctuary for elephants, buffaloes and myriads of other animals.

 

Delta Dunes Lodge Accommodation
There are 6 dune cottages all built from driftwood, mangrove poles and thatch. All have both a lounge and a bedroom, and are raised on wooden platforms with matted floors. Completely open, each cottage has wonderful views and enormous double beds shaded with nets (en suite bathrooms with hot showers and flushed WCs, room service, safes and limited laundry services).

 

Two cottages act as larger family units with two rooms (four guests), one with a king size bed and the other with two singles and en suite shower and toilet. The all-inclusive format offers full board accommodation with soft drinks, beer, wine at table, and a laundry service.

 

Delta Dunes Lodge Dining and bars
The Lodge kitchen offers exquisite food, the prime ingredients being fresh fish and seafood, which is caught daily and brought by the local fishermen to the lodge. Other alternatives are also available and meals can be served privately on the veranda of the cottage.
