Tana River Primate National Reserve is a small reserve, created in 1976, to protect a small number of primates, which have no other location in Kenya. There are two species, the Red Colobus and the Crested Mangabey. These species are generally found in the rain forests of western Uganda and in Zaire.

The Tana River Primate National Reserve is a mixture of savannah and riverine forest and is also home to both the common and Grevy's zebra, the Maasai and Reticulated giraffe. Oryx, buffalo and the lesser kudu. The river hosts plenty of crocodile and hippo, and the variety of water birds is not to be missed.
