About Delta Dunes
Tana River, Lower Tana Delta Conservancy
Delta Dunes, “The Wild place by the Sea” is a lodge uniquely combining beach, river and bush to give you an unforgettable experience. Perched on top of miles of rolling rippling sand dunes with fabulous views overlooking the old delta of the Tana River on one side and the Indian Ocean on the other, alfresco accommodation and mess area are built in a castaway style but with all the ultimate comforts. This is the only wetland of its type in Eastern Africa.
Explore this phenomenon with incredible birdlife; aquatic life and wildlife coupled with endless miles of vast uninhabited beach that is wild, exciting and extremely beautiful!
No crowded beaches here with 67km of vast uninhabited beach that is wild, exciting and obviously stunning to behold… and all to yourself! At low tide the beach is serene and relaxing. Miles of rippling, rolling sand dunes stand majestically overlooking the creek on one side and the Indian Ocean on the other; fantastic views and exciting game tracking through the sand in the early mornings. Activities include boat cruises for sun-downers and bird and game spotting, bush walks with armed & experienced guides, creek fishing, water skiing, kayaking, tubing, swimming, surfing & sand yachting. Boat trips with the local community on the fresh water river to see hundreds of birds, crocodiles and hippos. Special highlights: exceptional resident and migrant bird life; pods of hippos & crocodile; endemic Tana River bushbuck; buffalo, lion, leopard and elephant can occasionally be seen and tracks usually found on game walks; cultural visits and dances by the local indigenous Pokomo and Orma tribes.
Experience the enchanted views of the river, ocean and the forest. Magical.
