Ngezi Forest on the north of Pemba is one of the last remaining indigenous forests and became a reserve in the 1950´s. Once the forest covered the whole of Pemba and it is very similar to a rain forest. 50 m tall trees, eagles, Red Colobus Monkeys (indigenous to Zanzibar) and Pemba Vervet Monkeys and a heavenly ambiance is what you get when walking around.
Here, besides in Wete, you can also find the Pemba Flying Fox– known for its fox colored fur, looks like a small dog actually. 95 % of its population is found on Pemba .
