Forest, mangroves and monkeys
On the way to the South East coast lies Jozani Rainforest – a lush and cool forest- part of the Chwaka Bay Conservation Area.
Jozani is the largest area of mature forest on Zanzibar and a hot-spot of biodiversity and stunning scenery.
Meet the monkeys
The rainforest is home to a number of endemic species, including the very rare Red Colobus Monkey, only found in Zanzibar and one of Africa´s rarest primates.
The population on the island is 3500 monkeys of which a third can be found in Jozani Forest. Other animals to be seen when walking the natural trails lined with eucalyptus and mahogany trees, is Blue Sykes Monkeys, elephant shrews and bush babies.
The walk through the rainforest takes about 45 min and you will notice the dramatic change as you enter the mangrove forest where crabs and fish are seen in the muddy water at low tide.
