Call a specialist to talk about Jozani Forest.

Once the home of leopards, Zanzibar’s nearest destination to a game reserve is Jozani Forest, located in the south of the island. Currently Jozani is under consideration to become a World Heritage Site, and is well worth a visit for its stunning scenery and biodiversity.

Top of the list of things to see here is the endemic Red Colobus Monkey. Troops of these monkeys can be found scrambling from branch to branch, in search of food. The monkeys have become acclimatised to people and allow you to get close to them to take photographs as they eat, play and jump from the treetops.

Your guide will take you on a nature trail, lined with eucalyptus and mahogany trees and explain the medicinal properties of various plants and tell you about the animals, birds and reptiles that make their home in the various habitats of this tropical rainforest.

In addition a mangrove boardwalk takes you above a swamp, where, depending on the tide, you can see tropical fish flitting between the mangrove roots and crabs scuttling across the mud.

If it's a largely tourist-free beach location that you're after, just wanting relaxation, then the various resorts on Zanzibar's East Coast will give you this.

Zanzibar's Northern tip is where it's all happening - the watersports, the night life and the maximum density of other tourists. Depends what you are after - activity or quiet.

Image of Zanzibar Southview


Very similar to Zanzibar's East Coast, it's Southern coastal stretch offers the opportunity to simply relax on a perfect beach, in reasonable solitude.

Many visitors seem to be unaware that Zanzibar's West Coast offers equally good beach and watersport facilities to other areas, together with much closer proximity to Stone Town and the airport.
