Jozani Forest lies 35kms South-East of Zanzibar Town with an area of about 1,000 hectares, it is the only remaining natural forest on Unguja island where long ago you could find leopards and antelopes. 

At present it is the habitat for the Red Colobus Monkeys and the Blue Sykes Monkey. 

The Red Colobus monkey is one of the most endangered and rarest species on this planet. The Red Colobus monkeys that are found in this Forest are very friendly and love to be photographed and can be viewed at close quarters by the help of your guide.

Other interesting features in this forest include the coastal evergreen bushland, mangrove forest, saline grassland and ground water forest, though these may require longer walks to reach.
