 The Tana River National Primate Reserve

The Tana River National Primate Reserve was gazetted in 1976 to protect the Lower Tana riverine forests and two highly endangered primates, the Mangabey Monkey and the Tana River Red Colobus. The reserve consists mainly of patches of riperian forest extending for 16 km along the meandering course of the Lower Tana River, 350 km east of Nairobi and 240 km north of Mombasa. At the time of establishment, the reserve occupied approximately 171 km of forest, dry woodland and savanna habitat on the east and west of the Lower Tana River, 16 patches of forests ranging from 10 to 625 hectares in size fall within the reserve.
