Jozani Forest Reserve Half-Day Guided Tour from Zanzibar With Transfer -Zanzibar

Jozani Forest Reserve Half-Day Guided Tour from Zanzibar With Transfer -Zanzibar

Your tour around the Jozani Forest Reserve will be led by an experienced guide, with good knowledge of the reserve’s flora and fauna. As you follow the park’s network of nature trails, keep an eye out for some of the forest’s residents. As well as the colobus monkey, there are Sykes’ monkeys, bush pigs, Zanzibar suni, tree hyraxes and Ader’s duiker, as well as more than 40 species of bird – not least among them a species of Fischer’s turaco with unusual coloured wings. At one spot in particular, you will usually find two groups of habituated red colobus monkeys, which are no longer disturbed by the presence of humans. As a result, they go about their day-to-day business taking little notice of the humans staring up from below – so it’s often a fantastic place for photographs. In the south of the forest you can follow a boardwalk deep into the mangrove swamps and find out how this fascinating ecosystem protects the Zanzibar coastline.
