The skyscrapers of Tanaga, New Mombasa.

Tanaga was a district of the port city of New Mombasa, Africa on Earth.[1] It was part of the city center.[Note 1] Tanaga rested on a large arcology-like structure, with walls that sloped down to the level of the surrounding terrain.[2] In the middle of the district was the NMPD headquarters building.[1]


By October, 2552 there were multiple construction projects in progress in this area. On October 20, 2552 and during the Battle of Mombasa, members of Alpha-Nine attempted to regroup on the upper floors of the NMPD Headquarters. However this did not happen as the extraction Pelican crash landed on a nearby under construction skyscraper.[1] By the time Alpha-Nine evacuated the city, the Covenant had glassed most of the city excluding Tanaga.[3]


A district called Tangana exits in modern-day Mombasa, located approximately where Tanaga is located in Halo 3: ODST.
