Zanzibars first and only National Park is centred on Jozani Forest and lies 35kms South-East of Zanzibar Town with an area of about 1,000 hectares, it is a natural forest where long ago you could find leopards and antelopes. At present it is the habitat for the Red Colobus Monkeys (Colobus badius kirkii) and the Blue Sykes Monkey. The Red Colobus monkey is one of the most endangered and rarest species in the world, they are very friendly creatures and love to be photographed and can be viewed at close quarters by the help of your guide.
You may also get a glimpse of various butterflies, birds and snakes. Other interesting features suitable for tourist in this forest include the coastal evergreen bush land, mangrove forest, saline grassland and ground water forest, though these may require longer walks to reach.
