Jozani Forest Tour

This guided walking tour is an excellent introduction to Zanzibar’s sole national park: Jozani-Chwaka Bay National Park. An experienced park ranger will lead you through the forest’s nature trail, where you can hope to spot troops of its most famous resident – the red colobus monkey, an endangered species endemic to Zanzibar – in the treetops. Other species you may see in the forest are the Sykes monkey, bush babies, duikers and a rich variety of birds and butterflies.

Duration:

Half day

Serengeti Hot-Air Balloon Safari

After watching the crew inflate their craft at the launch site, take flight and drift upwards as the sun rises for an entirely different perspective of the Serengeti; the bright pink-orange haze visible for miles across the vast savannah; a group of grazing zebra becoming distinguishable from their silhouette forms below; a family of elephants wandering just below you. The photo opportunities are incredible. And wherever you land, a Champagne breakfast will be laid out for you to enjoy. It’s one of our most highly recommended safari experiences. Please ask your Personal Travel Expert for details.

Duration:

Around an hour for the balloon ride, drifting wherever the air currents take you

Start time: Before dawn
What to take:

We recommend bringing a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and a light jacket or jumper.

Discover historic buildings with elaborately carved wooden doors, shaded by balconies lining the narrow winding streets. You’ll visit the former slave market, pass consulates and explore old forts and gardens. Visit the imposing House of Wonders - the Sultan’s Palace - a museum dedicated to Zanzibar’s history and culture.
