Tana Delta in Kenya

Kenya’s largest river, the Tana, travels from Aberdares to the floodplains of the Tana Delta. Behind sand dunes that block the river from entering the Indian Ocean, lies the Lower Tana Delta Wetlands – a conservation area for this unique ecosystem. The forest stands on each side of the river, interspersed with lush paddies and sleepy villages. Dunes, grasslands and palm trees of the Dhoum island lie between a maze of creeks and mangrove swamps. Explore the forest on boats to see interesting birdlife, wildlife and wily Nile crocodiles. You can also enjoy the warm waters of the Indian Ocean at the gently sloping beach.
