What To Expect
In the south of the island, Jozani Forest is a wonder and delight with tales of Zanzibar leopards, medicinal cures and stunning scenery. As the Jozani-Chkwa Bay area is a hotspot of biodiversity, the forest is under consideration to be Zanzibar's second World Heritage Site. It is home to a number of endemic species, including the Zanzibar Red Colobus Monkey.
You will be guided by a park ranger who will take you on a nature trail, lined with eucalyptus and mahogany trees and explain the medicinal properties of various plants. You will also hear abou the animals, birds and reptiles that make their home in the various habitats of this tropical rainforest.
Troops of the Zanzibar Red Colobus can be found scrambling from branch to branch, in search of food. The monkeys have become familiar with people and allow you to get close to take photographs as they eat, play and jump from treetops.
The mangrove boardwalk takes you above the swamp where you can see tropical fish flitting between the mangrove roots and crabs scuttling across the mud.
