Jozani Forest has become the last stronghold in the world for this particular type of colobus.

Itinerary Details

Head to the south of the island of Zanzibar, where the Jozani Forest awaits you. Take a 2-hour tour through its stunning scenery, experiencing the wonder and delight of your natural surroundings.

The forest is home to a number of endemic species, including the Zanzibar red colobus monkey. The mangrove boardwalk takes you above the swamp, where, depending on the tide, you can see Indian Ocean tropical fish flitting between the mangrove roots and crabs scuttling across the mud.

Your park ranger will take you on a nature trail, lined with eucalyptus and mahogany trees, and explain the medicinal properties of various plants. As you walk, learn about the animals, birds, and reptiles that make their home in the various habitats of this tropical rainforest.
