All about the trip
Don't miss this unique experience to swim with wild dolphins in their natural environment. Every morning your team is ready to offer you an unforgettable moment. You can observe dolphins from the boat. If you want, you can go into the water with them. Your skippers will explain to you some rules of approach to respect these fantastic marine mammals and their environment. After swimming with the dolphins, you will relax and swim as long as you wish at Kizimkazi beach and then we will have fresh fruits (bananas, watermelon, oranges, and coconut juice) at Sunset Local restaurant which is also located at the beach. Once you will be ready, then we will go to Jozani Forest National Park.
The Jozani Forest National Park is a national park in Zanzibar covering 50 km² and it is the largest park in the Island. Jozani Forest is well known for red colobus monkeys which can be easily found at this forest - Zanzibar Sykes’ monkey, a very rare monkey species unique to Zanzibar. You will be able to approach the monkeys at this forest from up close (1 meter away) but you are not allowed to touch them. One thing special is that red colobus monkeys and other types of monkeys in this forest are so friendly with humans that they won't attack or disturb you. Also at Jozani Forest, you will be able to see a lot of plants, some can be used for local medicine uses and other different uses. Another major attraction at Jozani Forest is a mangrove boardwalk. At this place, you will be able to see mangroves and take the best pictures as it offers the best natural views. From the Jozani Forest, we continue into Butterfly Farm.
The tour can take 30 – 40 minutes where you can inspect the tiny butterfly eggs, touch and hold the hungry caterpillars and watch them nibble away at the leaves. the Zanzibar Butterfly Center, a project that is supported by the WWF in order to save Zanzibar’s indigenous butterflies. Most of them are set free once they are grown up, few remain in order to produce future generations, and the villagers take the eggs home to tend to them until they turn into caterpillars, pupae, and at last new butterflies.
You will also experience the unforgettable lunch at the ocean shore of The Rock Restaurant - a restaurant with its own island! There is nothing better than a tasteful dinner straight from the old Swahili cuisine recipes including lobster, cigal, king prawns, octopus, and calamari all on the grill. Of course, we will book a table for you. After tours, you be dropped off at your hotel.
