Jozani Nature Walk & Dolphins Snorkel
Jozani Forest - Full Day
Kick-start your trip by firstly visits Matemwa fishing village with the aim swim with, or spotting dolphins depending on their mood. As one of the first commercial centers on the island, the village adds a chapter to Zanzibar’s history. While snorkeling on one of the coral reefs, you’ll be on the lookout for dolphins playing nearby and hoping to get a chance to swim with them.
Head to Jozani Forest thereafter, the home to the very rare primate found only in Zanzibar – the red colobus monkey. A total of 50 square kilometers (19 square miles) make up the Jozani Forest National Park, which also includes a portion of the Jozani Chwaka National Park. The park is located in Zanzibar’s central-east region and has excellent natural trails. Other wildlife present in Jozani includes small buck, elephant shrews, Sykes’ monkeys, blue monkeys, and bush pigs. Reptiles include the chameleon, tortoise, monitor lizard, gecko, green-tree snakes, mamba, python, and stripped lizard. Visit the mangroves, which have a bridge created by the conservation authority to allow tourists to observe this endangered flora specie without disturbing it.
If time permits in the late afternoon, stop for a while at the Zanzibar Butterfly Center, a community initiative. Regardless of its size, it is a great spot to unwind and relish the last few hours of your trip.
