Zanzibar Excursion- Prison Island Tour
Zanzibar Excursion-Stone Town , also known as Miji Mkongwe, which means “Old Town” in Swahili. This legendary site presents a beautiful and unique blend of Indian, Persian, Arabian, and European elements, and the name “Stone Town ” comes from the use of coral stone as the main construction material for the construction of walls and buildings. Stone Town was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2000.

While exploring the city, the guide will take you on a historical and cultural journey through the most interesting places in the city, including the old slave market, Darajani market, House of Miracles, Old Fort, Sultan’s Palace, Hanami baths, the most important churches and much more.
Zanzibar Excursion- Jozani Forest is located 38 km southeast of Stone Town. Jozani Forest, also known as Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park, is the only national park on the island of Zanzibar. It is best known for the Colobus monkeys that can only be seen in Zanzibar. About 20 years ago, monkeys were threatened with extinction. This tendency was reversed thanks to the conservation project. About 6,000 red colobuses live in the Jozani Forest. The forest is also home to around 40 different species of birds and around 50 species of butterflies. Here you can see what the mangroves are, which are extremely important to the ecosystems of Zanzibar, providing habitat for many lizards, snakes and birds, and preventing coastal erosion. In fact, Jozani Forest is a place where many plants and trees grow from which natural remedies come. For this reason, sometimes referred to as Jozani forest is called a natural pharmacy.
