“Adventure of a life time”

Jozani Forest is best known for its red colobus monkeys, which are endemic to Zanzibar. About 20 years ago, the monkeys were considered to be in danger of extinction. This trend has since reversed due to the conservation project. About 6000 red colobus monkeys are residing in Jozani Forest.

After visiting the red colobus, you will walk across to the Pete-Jozani Mangrove Boardwalk. It entwines through coral thicket vegetation, mangrove forest, and across a creek. You walk through mangrove forests which are extremely crucial to Zanzibar’s ecosystems, providing a habitat for many lizards, snakes, and birdlife as well as preventing coastal erosion.

More about Jozani Forest tour

Jozani Forest is situated 38 km southeast of Stone Town. In 1995, the Jozani Chwaka Bay Conservation Project was set up to protect the largest remaining patch of indigenous ground-water forest that used to cover Zanzibar. Local communities are involved in the project and some of your entrance fees contribute to development projects and compensate local farmers whose crops are often damaged by the red colobus monkeys.

Jozani Forest has several habitats including swamp forest, evergreen thickets, and mangroves, as well as a variety of wildlife, including sykes and red colobus monkeys, bush pigs, and Ader’s duiker, and Suni antelopes, elephant shrews, chameleons and lots of birdlife.
