On the south of the island, there is a magical forest called Jozani Forest. The scenery of this typical forest is unique in many different ways. Jozani Forest is currently being considered Zanzibar’s second-world heritage site! The Jozani-Chwaka Bay area is a hotspot of biodiversity; the forest is home to several endemic species, including the Zanzibar Red Colobus Monkey. During this one hour and a half tour at Jozani forest you will learn more about them. After the tour, our driver will drop you off to your hotel where you will be back full of nice memories.

          Your park ranger will take you on a nature trail lined with eucalyptus and mahogany trees, explain the medicinal properties of various plants, and tell you about the animals, birds, and reptiles that make their home in the various habitats of this tropical rainforest. Troops of Zanzibar Red Colobus monkeys can be found scrambling from branch to branch in search of food. The monkeys have become accustomed to people and allow you to get close to them to take photographs as they eat, play, and jump from the treetops. The mangrove boardwalk takes you above the swamp, where, depending on the tide, you can see crabs scuttling across the mud. Mangroves play an important role in environmental conservation and act as a resource for villagers and community life. Your ranger will explain the different species found in the swamp and their uses.

          Terrible experience
          Two days, day after day there were no flights. Don’t waste your time and money. Some people told that there were no flights for 3 days.

          What a wonderful experience
          Decided to book this day trip whilst in Zanzibar. It was a quick easy booking process, with all our questions being answered before we left. The hotel made sure that we received our tickets as well as our transfer to the airport. It was an early start but SO worth it. We saw so many animals -crocs, warthog, elephant, hippo, giraffe, lions and tons of buck and bird. The lunch in the bush was absolutely delicious – we were expecting a snack box but it’s a proper meal served up in the bush. We flew back to Zanzibar in the afternoon and our transfer was waiting to meet us. Very well organised and so worth it.

          We booked this trip via our hotel, it worked out cheaper than online and if the weather prevented us from flying, we would have got our money back. Luckily, it was raining in Zanzibar but dry in Tanzania so we were good to go. We had a pick up from the hotel at 5:00 to take us to the airport, due to the weather, our 7:00 flight was delayed to 8:00. Flying into the safari park, straight onto a jeep and the adventure begins. It doesn't matter how many safaris or countries you see wild animals in their natural habitats, it's always mesmerising. We were lucky to see the elephants, giraffes, baby warthogs, crocodiles, hippos, birds, gazelles, wildebeest and a pride of lionesses. The driver/guide was knowledgeable and explained as we drove through. The included lunch was plentiful and satisfying. There was further exploration after lunch before our flight back at 16:00. The pilot was very friendly, informative and flew smoothly, especially through heavy rain, which is why the flight back took a little 80 mins to get back. Really well worth a trip.

          Best experience ever!
          This was the best experience/day we had on our trip! We decided to book through trip advisor just to make sure everything was safe. Considering that we didn’t pay straight away, the company contacted us immediately after we made our booking to take all our details i.e. where we were staying etc and the names and details of the parties attending. The person we were communicating with via WhatsApp was really helpful. Payment was taken approximately 3 days before we did the Safari. We were picked up from our hotel at a time confirmed by the company. They message you a couple days before with the itinerary and also your flight ticket confirmation ( this is not your ticket as you get that at the airport). We arrived at Zanzibar airport to take a local flight to Mikumi. It took approximately 40 minutes. On arrival we had our Safari guide waiting to take us to start the Safari. Luckily, we got to see all of the animals. The tour guide was really helpful as well as the driver. We stopped for lunch at approximately 1:00pm and after continued the tour and headed back to get our flight at approximately 3:30/4:00pm. It is definitely worth the money especially if you just want to do it for one day. I hope this has helped. Get booking!

          1-day Safari tour to Selous/Nyerere from Zanzibar
          We were a Group of 6 people from Sweden and took this 1-day Safari to Selous/Nyerere from Zanzibar. This tour had the best price and was professionally organized. It was our first Safari experience so we had a lot of questions before we went on the tour. All questions were answered easily via WhatsApp (Reheme, working for the company, very friendly and professional help with all the questions we had)we got correct information and a lot of tips what to think about and expect prior the tour Everything went smooth and we felt safe and all details were taken care of, we did not have to care about anything, just enjoyed the amazing experience. 1. Pickup by taxi in the morning at 4AM, on time, transfer to airport 2. The taxi driver follows you to the airport meeting the group, where people from the company wait for you and guide you to right gate for the flight to Mtemere/Selous airstrip 3. Flight to Safari (Selous) approx 30 minutes 4. At landing you are met by people from the company (your Safari tour guide for the day) with your name and follow you to the right Safari car (private, only your group in the car) 5 Around 7AM starts the Safari (free cold bottled water in the cars, we received even cold beers in our car) 6 Our driver, Chars and the other crew member were very friendly and polite. Really nice people working hard to give you the best possible experience, driving all over the place to see as many animals as possible. They managed to spot a lot of animals for us: Elephants, Lions, Hyppos, Buffaloes, Giraffes, Zebras, Gnus, Baboons, Crocodiles, Impalas, a lot of different exotic birds and many more. 7 Coffee/Tea break around 10 AM with delicious bagels (something like a bagel) after that the Safari continues, lunch around 1 PM and more Safari, then back to the airport/airstrip around 4:30-5:30 PM for the flight back to Zanzibar (30 minutes flight) 8At the airport in Zanzibar the taxi driver waits for you and drops you at your hotel. Everything is taken care of, we had only to lean back and enjoy the ride. Fantastic experience! Truly amazing!! Wow!!! Please note that this people are working very hard to give you the best possible experience, but they can not guarantee that you can spot every animal you have on your list, it depends on a lot of factors what you can see during your trip. Mother Nature has her own rules and every Safari experience is different. Every Safari tour is unique. The trip was a Once-In-A-Lifetime experience for us, and the crew did its best and even more than that to satisfy us. They succeeded with their mission to 110% Highly recommend this Safari trip with this Company! I would not hesitate to book it again if back in Tanzania!

          Super organized. They picked us at hotel, they been with us in the airport waiting for us to board. They were waiting with their safari jeep for us right where we lended in Mikumi. We had a buffet lunch. Our guide and driver at safari was nice, friendly and full of positive energy. They were waiting for us to board in flight for Zanzibar. When we landed in front doors of airport driver that was going to drives us back to hotel was waiting with paper with our names written on. All best

        We were lucky to have a very experienced guide with a degree in geology!! He explained the unique forest and its inhabitants and we saw a lot of red colobus monkeys and even an elephant shrew! Mangrove forrest also very worth a visit. If you are a nature lover its a must!
