Jozani Forest, Zanzibar Island

3.8
#2 of 6 in Nature in Zanzibar Island
Get a close-up view of the rare red colobus monkey at Jozani Forest, Tanzania's only national park on the island of Zanzibar. With mangroves, tropical forests, and coral rag, this 50 sq km (19 sq mi) park also plays home to midget frogs, Sykes' monkeys, bush babies, Aders' duikers, and, reportedly, the legendary Zanzibar leopard. Nocturnal hyraxes here keep company to over 50 species of butterfly and 40 species of birds. Take a safari tour to see red colobuses, emblematic of Zanzibar's conservation efforts.

  • Red colobus monkeys live here in their natural habitat. Also beautiful mangroves. It's a must if you visit Zanzibar.
  • Was worth the experience, but got to see little monkeys only from far away, walked in the forest and learned more about trees :) cannot go in alone, only with a ticket and a tipped guide, journey was 1,5 hour
  • See animals in their natural environment. Walk in a beautiful forest. Listen to a knowledgeable guide.
  • I've seen mor spectacular wildlife parks than this one. The tourists are larger in number than the monkeys. But it's still worth the visit.
  • Agree it is very good. Beautiful nature conservation area.
