The Jozani forest reserve lies between Chwaka bay and Uzi bay and it is the only remaining natural forest of Unguja and represents a very important refuge for the fauna of the island. Once the whole of the Island was covered in a rich tapestry of swamp forest, evergreen thicket and mangrove now all that remains is Jozani Forest.
Despite this fact Jozani still boasts an eclectic Bio-diversity, with many strange and wonderful animals residing in and below the canopy of old giants.Red Colobus monkeys are the most famous inhabitants of the forest; a sub-species only found on this island, they can be seen calmly lazing around or fooling amongst themselves in the branches, their red coats a reminder of British colonial rule.
But keep your eyes open and you may be lucky enough to see Sunnis (small deer), chameleons. A day out in the Jozani forest reserve is no doubt a well worth while and rewarding experience.
