Tana Delta


... is a remote and little-visited the portion of the northern Kenyan Coast, midway between Malindi and Lamu.

Tana Delta is a particularly interesting section of the coast, best suited to travellers who are more interested in continuing their safari whilst down on the Indian Ocean rather than a more conventional beach stay

The Tana River rises on the eastern slopes of Mount Kenya and creates a ribbon of green riverine forest across 500km of otherwise parched and largely empty semi-desert towards the coast, where it fans out into an impressive mangrove delta fringed by high sand dunes.

Around 80km upstream from the coast lies the Tana River Primate Reserve, a relatively small area of protected riverine land which is home to a broad range of wildlife including a couple of very rare endemic primates.

Tana Delta Camp ... is an upmarket but very outdoorsy and cool beach hangout, set on the dunes above the beach and offering a wide range of land and ocean activities.

The usual stay duration is 3 to 6 nights, with access most commonly being by light aircraft from Lamu Island in the north, with which it is commonly combined in trips, along with Manda Island and Kiwayu Island even further north.

Prime coastal areas such as this are usually visited in combination with a selection of the best safari areas in the country, including Masai Mara, Meru, Laikipia North and Chyulu Hills.
