Description

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.

Then take a one-hour drive from Stone Town to Kizimkazi located in Zanzibar's south coast for a day of dolphin spotting. Kizimkazi is home to large numbers of bottle-nosed and spinner dolphins, beautiful coral reefs and tropical fish.

A short safety briefing will be given upon arrival, informing you about the dos and don'ts when faced with these wild animals. Then, board a traditional ocean-going dhow and set sail on the Indian Ocean where you can get as close to 10 meters from the dolphins.

On good days, you can watch these sleek and gray creatures as they jack-knife through the water, sometimes showing off with jumps and twists. Whether you're fortunate enough to see dolphins or not, you can enjoy two hours of sailing and taking in the sights of the beautiful ocean.
