Visit the famous Jozani Forest National Park, Zanzibar's only National Park, to see local wildlife and natural habitats, including African rock pythons, red colobus monkeys, and crocodiles on a guided day tour. Explore Zanzibar's luscious groundwater forest at the national park and see rare animal species only found on the island, such as the cheeky red colobus monkey.

Great day with our driver and guide Karim. We had a great time at Zanzibar National Park and even more at the zoo with a great guide! The restaurant, included in the price, was very good and facing the ocean. Highly recommend this activity, we moved all over the island all day. Special mention for Karim who was perfect!

Good service, pick-up on time, nice guide, great experiences, zoo, forest, swimming with turtles I will leave with bad memories, they are wild animals that look very nice, one attacked me from behind and bit my arm, I hope the blue ring left behind around the wound on your arm doesn't develop into blood poisoning

Our guide was great at Jozani, the monkeys were beautiful, we got to see a few up close. Swimming with top turtles too, being able to pet them and feed them was a great experience! Regarding the zoo, it was just as great, our guide was really adorable, we were able to enter the enclosures of certain animals, feed them, pet them. The food in the restaurant was delicious and inexpensive for the extras! I highly recommend this activity! We had our eyes full!
