The Tana River Primate Reserve is located in Tana River at the coast of Kenya. This is about 350km from the capital city and approximately 240km from Mombasa City. This protection zone, established in 1976, preserves endangered species like the Mangabey and the red colobus monkeys. Humans invaded land around this water source putting mangabeys in danger and that’s why the reserve was established. The Tana River mangabey monkey is prevalent in forests along the banks of this river. The mangabey, with its white eyelids and yellow-brown fur, is a remarkable sight as you explore the park.
