Tana Delta Dune Lodge is a pinpoint of luxury surrounded by one of the world's unspoilt wildernesses. Like a last outpost of civilisation, it straddles the miles-long line of sand dunes that shield the Tana Delta's flood plains from the waters of the ocean. Gazing inland from the highest point on these dunes one overlooks Kenya's largest wetlands, a newly established Conservation Area, free of roads and any intrusive development, which can be explored only by boat and on foot. This exquisite remoteness is further enhanced by the enormous scenic diversity of coastal thickets, acacia and doum palm savannah, open plains, and mangrove swamps, interspersed by the slow-flowing waters of the Tana River, ox-bow lakes and tidal creeks.
The lodge's accommodation comprises five castaway-style cottages (one of which has two bedrooms). The common theme is the daring openness of construction, coupled with stunning locations offering panoramic views. Far apart for total privacy, the rooms are connected to one another (and the top and bottom dining areas) by stone paths and steps threading steeply through the dunes. Spacious ensuite bathrooms offer al fresco showers
open to the stars
There are also two community self-catering lodges – Mto Tana and Mulikani. Both sleep 4 people in 2 cottages – semi-open with wonderful views.
