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

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.

After it didn't work out on the first day due to technical problems, we were even picked up from the hotel by boat the next day.

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
