Zanzibar: Jozani Forest, Local Zoo and Swimming with Turtles

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.

Zanzibar: Parasailing Boat Trip with Flight Instructor

2. Zanzibar: Parasailing Boat Trip with Flight Instructor

Get the best panoramic views of Zanzibar and its coastline with an unforgettable parasailing adventure. Appreciate the views from 300 meters above including the sandy, white beaches of Nungwi and Kendwa, coral reefs, tropical trees, and local resorts and fishing villages. You can feel secure in the knowledge that your flight instructor will make sure you have a fantastic time in a safe way, with the activity being suitable for people aged 8 upwards. After some training in flying and safety instructions, your instructor will take you out in the parasailing boat. You will be secured into a safety harness when it is your turn and your instructor will slowly release you. At the end of the flight, the hydraulic winch system will gently reel you back in until you land softly on the boat’s platform. Feel the thrill of the flight as you float in the air behind the boat for approximately 10 - 12 minutes. When you are finished, take in the beautiful coastal scenery as you sit back, relax and enjoy the rest of the boat ride.

What people are saying about Zanzibar Archipelago

These guys are just amazing. I have been using them for all the lenght of my trip. They are real professional people and very flexible to adapt to all the need a tourst might have (for example they kept my suitcases with them for a full day while visiting prison island as they took me to the airport only in the evening). In total I have used their trasnport service 6 times and they have always been ready ahead of the time scheduled. You can tell that is a local, small company and not an intrnational giant because you get the chance to meet the sames drivers if you use them more times! We met Jumi a couple of times and he was extremely helpful and such a nice person to have a chat with while moving around the island. Finally their cars are always extremely comfortable and clean. Thanks guys for the excellent service. you made our trip very smooth and pleasant!
