Jozani Forest Tour.

Tour highlights:

Join us on a guided tour of Jozani Forest, a protected nature reserve and home to the endangered Zanzibar Red Colobus Monkey. Led by an experienced guide, you’ll trek through the lush forest trails, spotting a variety of wildlife and exotic plant species along the way. The highlight of the tour is the opportunity to observe the playful and acrobatic red colobus monkeys in their natural habitat. You’ll also have a chance to learn about the conservation efforts to protect these endangered primates and their unique ecosystem.

Estimated duration of the Tour: 2-3 hours

Advisable start time: 8:00am

Reason: Starting early in the morning means you’ll have a better chance of seeing the monkeys and other wildlife that call the forest home, as they are more active in the cooler temperatures. You’ll also have plenty of time to explore the forest and learn about its unique ecology and conservation efforts.
