Famous for its rare Red Colobus Monkeys (Piliocolobus kirkii), the Jozani Forest is a unique destination and a must when you visit Zanzibar. When you arrive in Zanzibar, you will be amazed by a tropical paradise with palms, shrubs, and flame trees. The Jozani Forest can surprise you even more with its different beauty, its enormous trees, its uncommon plants, and its remarkable wildlife. The Jozani Forest is the only and first National Park in Zanzibar. The forest grew in a small trough in the coral bed between the mangrove bays of Uzi and Chwaka. A high water table and seasonal flooding provide the forest with water and nutrients to survive in the harsh conditions of a coral island.
Some of the highlights at Jozani Forest include:
- The Mangrove Boardwalk
- Nature Trail
- Sykes’ Monkeys
- Hundreds of different species of butterflies
- Aders’ Duikiers (a very rare and shy animal and we hope you are lucky enough to see it)
- Red Colubus Monkeys
