Jozani forest is best known for its kirk’s red colobus monkeys (kima punju in swahili), which are en- demic to Zanzibar. About 10 years ago, the monkeys were considered to be in danger of extinc- tion, but this trend has since reversed due to the conservation project. There are about 6000 red colobus monkeys residing in Jozani Forest. After visiting the monkeys, you will walk across to the Pete-Jozani Mangrove Boardwalk, which entwines through coral thicket vegetation, mangrove forest and across a creek. You walk through mangrove forest which is extremely crucial to Zanzibar’s ecosystems, providing a habitat for many lizards, snakes and birdlife as well as preventing coastal erosion. Later afternoon hours you will return back to Stone town for lunch and self-leisure time or last minute shopping.
