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.

The rain didn't bother us - we're on a tropical island and in a rainforest. The guide was very nice, funny and patient. Waited for stragglers, explained properly and answered questions. The tour is divided into 2 parts: Jozani Forest + red colobus monkeys & the mangroves. To the mangroves you drive with the brought driver, taxi, bus etc. actually a pity because you could definitely see some interesting things on the way to the mangroves (approx. 2km) if you walk it. The tour lasted a total of 1 hour. The entrance fee is 12 USD and at the end the guide wants to have a tip. All in all, this tour is fine
Great experience to see both the scenic forests of Zanzibar as well as the local indigenous animal life. Most people just go to see the monkeys, which are amazing, but the rest of the forest is breathtaking as well. If possible, organize this with a guide so that you get the full experience of both the forest as well as the Mangrove trees.
Lovely hikes. Great guides. Enjoyed the experience.
