Full description
Take a trip into Zanzibar’s quiet interior with some of the best opportunities for wildlife viewing on a 3-hour green panorama tour. Get up close to the plant and animal life in Zanzibar and learn more about this unique ecosystem.

Your first stop is Jozani Forest, home to the island’s most famous and photographed resident, the Zanzibar red colobus monkey. You will also see animals such as the Ader’s duiker, Sykes' monkeys, bush babies, African civets, giant elephant shrews, and chameleons as well as around 83 species of birds.

Next door to Jozani is the Zanzibar Butterfly Centre, an interactive butterfly exhibit consisting of a netted tropical garden with hundreds of butterflies, all of which are native species to Zanzibar. The enclosure is one of Africa’s largest butterfly exhibits and will provide you with an interactive and visual environment to learn about butterflies.

Your last stop on the tour is ZALA Park, a fascinating menagerie of exotic reptiles and amphibians, as well as duikers, bush babies, and hyrax. Various concrete compounds are dotted about the small park, and inside, natural habitats have been created for snakes, monitor lizards, crabs, and chameleons, to name just a few. You may even be allowed to crawl into the large cage housing 4 enormous pythons!
