The Jozani Forest is a conservation area established in the 1960s in the core of Zanzibar Island. Jozani forest is located in the center of the Jozani-Chwaka Bay National Park, Covering an area of 50 square kilometers, this reserve also includes a section of the Jozani Chwaka National Park and was set up for the conservation of the kirk’s red colobus monkey, a beautiful and rare primate. Thanks to conservation drives, these monkeys now number close to 2500. The diversity of woodland landscape this lush forest covers is truly incredible. It includes a tidal water-washed area between the Uzi and Chwaka Island bays, teeming with mangrove trees and other marine vegetation.

One kilometer to the West of the Jozani Park entrance is the Zanzibar Butterfly Centre. This enclosed tropical garden teaming with around a dozen species of butterfly is open daily.
