Jozani Forest Tour
Wonderful photo opportunities and sightings of the rare creatures living in the forest with excellent nature-trailItinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this productStop At:
Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park, Zanzibar Tanzania
This forest is one of the last remaining sanctuaries in the world of the red colobus monkeys.
The forest is 2,512 hectares (6,207 acres) in size and was declared a nature reserve in the 1960’s.
Wonderful photo opportunities and sightings of these rare creatures living in the forest reserves are possible on the pathways. Our guides are also naturalists and nature lovers will have a wonderful time in the nature reserve.
They were an endangered species, but numbers have increased in recent years thanks to conservation work by the nature reserve working closely with the local people. It is estimated that there are now between 2,000-2,500 monkeys. The monkeys are wild, but it is possible to get close to them and they carry on their normal activities as though human visitors do not exist.
The elusive Zanzibar leopard (last sited several years ago) is said to feed here at night – perhaps this is why the reserve is only open during the day-!
Jozani has an excellent nature trail and the guides are well trained and informative. A walk through this impressive flora and fauna is one of the highlights Zanzibar has to offer.
At Jozani, you will also visit the Mangrove swamp and walk around the Mangrove forest. Other interesting features in this forest include the coastal evergreen bush land, saline grassland and ground water forest, though these may require longer walks to reach.
