Tana River Primate Reserve

Tana River Primate Reserve

Welcome To Tana River Primate Reserve

The Tana River Primate Reserve was opened in 1976 to protect the Lower Tana river forest and two endangered species of monkeys: the crested Mangabey and the Tana River Red Colobus Monkey. Access to the Tana River Primate Reserve is via the Malindi-Garissa road. As well as the lush river forest, there is dry woodland and open savannah bisected by the river. Many of the bird and animal species are unusual in East Africa, generally, they are typical of Central Africa’s lowland rainforest. One bird, in particular, the White-Winged Apalis, is extremely rare. Others include; openbill stork, martial eagle, bat hawk, pygmy falcon, barred owlet, scaly babbler, starling, golden pipit. The forest also supports a rich array of mammals, a high number of reptiles and amphibian species, as well as several rare plants, some of which are unique to this area. Small groups of visitors with a keen interest in primates and birdlife can be taken here.
