1. Zanzibar: Jozani Forest, Local Zoo and Swimming with Turtles

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. Walk through the park's mangroves as you make your way to your lunch spot, a restaurant nestled in the middle of the jungle. Listen to the sounds of the jungle surrounding you as you tuck into a delicious local meal. Enjoy a cooling dip in the pool after lunch before heading to the north of the island for a visit to the local zoo to see a number of other local animals, including chameleons, bushbabies, tortoises, ostriches, elephant shrews, and more. End your day out with a relaxing swim with turtles, which you have the chance to feed.

What people are saying about Jozani Forest National Park

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

Perfect day ! Rich and varied activities, a very attentive and very patient driver guide. The swim with the turtles was exceptional as was the encounter with the monkeys at the zoo.

Superb activity The walk in the forest is magnificent and the setting for swimming with the turtles is very pleasant.

Highly recommended experience! Our driver Ahmad was very kind to us and had an excellent deal with us
