This was the last stop of my indescribably transformational trip with Wow Travel club to Kenya. Our little group (12 of us) arrived with a chartered plane, and swiftly got into our boats, for a beautiful ride to the lodge. Lush landscape all the way, hippos popping their heads up on our way. Many moments during our 3 nights stay, when you just want to pinch yourself, to see if you are dreaming. As at all #SecludedAfrica properties, you will find a very attentive staff, knowledgable and joyous. Our Chef, who was as creative as delightful, has pleased every palette. Genet cats, Bush babies come out at night time, and during the day you can enjoy your private 16 miles long beach for a walk, or sand yacht, beach comb. Or go kayaking on the Tana river. It is eco chic at its finest, sustainable, driftwood heaven. The rooms are open, with your bed wrapped in mosquito net. The pool was very inviting, and laying out in the lovely hammocks, with the soft breeze, was very romantic! Climbing up to the rooms makes you feel like a modern day Robinson Crusoe. You will sleep like a baby here! Sun downers on the boat at sunset, and the clearest night sky lit up will guide your captain back. The sand dunes are so inviting, as are your rooms. You'll never want to leave. As at all stops, leaving was the only negative. Thank you Secluded Africa for this unforgettable trip. Na Kupenda Sana.

Dear 856dileshb, Thank you for leaving the review. I am pleased you enjoyed our lodge. We hope to welcome you again and would highly recommend flying by charter to our private airstrip or driving from Malindi (just 2.5hrs). The road from Lamu is not recommended as it is long, bumpy and has many checks, as you saw. We would love to know how we can improve. Please feel free to share your feedback at anytime. Best regards, Robyn, Secluded Africa

Another amazing experience shared by all at H12. Kizungu and all the staff are really kind, hospitable and hard working. We all really felt at home. The wind was great, we kited in 25 knots and enjoyed riding out at sea and inside the mouth of the river on the low tide. The river cruise was incredible, much much wildlife to spot, and a beautiful way to end the day in style! We will definitely be back!!

My wife and I travelled up from Diani and spent 2 amazing nights at this fantastic location. Perched on top of a sand dune with views over both the old Tana Delta Rivermouth as well as the Indian Ocean, the lodge offers barefoot luxury accommodation that was created with the concept of freedom of free flowing space. There are no doors or windows anywhere and the feeling of being outside at one with nature is overwhelming. The lodge manager Kelly did an amazing job of looking after us and organizing all our activities and all the crew, Ibrahim, Kazungu and Daniel made us feel right at home. We went with the intention to kitesurf and were lucky to score amazing conditions on the first day with a steady 20 knot breeze coming in off the ocean and perfect little kickers that were lining up as the tides rolled back in. The area is wild as has wildlife all around. On our river cruise we spotted a large group of hippo and had the pleasure of cruising through the conservancy which has around 277 different types of bird species inhabiting the area, making the area arguably one of the most important area for bird life in the whole of Kenya. Over all, this has to be one of THE best spots to experience the real African bush to beach experience and we plan to return again as this was without doubt one of our most favourite kitesurfing safari destinations along the East African coast. Thank you so much guys for everything, see you again soon!!

Hidden jewel at the coast in one of Kenya's most pristine conservancies. Beautiful setting in the dunes, delicious food fresh from the see and stunning sunsets from the lovely roof top and open room terraces. All of this with respect for nature, support to the local community and delightful activities, such as boat and birding trips in the vast mangrove forest. Sincere thanks to the dedicated staff for their outstanding service that made our stay so special. Delta Dunes is a wonderful place that make you want to go back...
