Jozani Forest Tour Experience In Zanzibar, Tanzania
The Jozani Forest is a conservation area established in the 1960s in the core of Zanzibar Island. Covering an area of 50 square kilometers, this reserve also includes a section of the Jozani Chwaka National Park and was set up for the conservation of the kirk’s red colobus monkey, a beautiful and rare primate. Subsisting on leaves and living most of their lives in the trees and bushes, evolution has more or less eliminated their opposable thumbs so they now have only a stub left.
As you go primate viewing on your exploratory vacation in Zanzibar, you will be delighted to watch these lively creatures in their natural habitat as they feed, groom one another and care for their young. They are used to seeing humans around and will forage close to you allowing you to take lots of pictures.
