Green Panorama Tour



Take a break from the sun loungers and souvenir stalls, and escape into the Island’s green pockets of lush indigenous forest. This half day tour takes you into Zanzibar’s quiet interior and offers some of the best opportunities for wildlife viewing. First stop is Jozani Forest, home to the island’s most famous and photographed resident, the Zanzibar red colobus monkey, as well as the Ader’s duiker, Sykes monkeys, bush babies, African civet, giant elephant shrews, and chameleons as well as around 83 species of birds.

Next door to Jozani is the Zanzibar Butterfly Centre, an interactive butterfly exhibit consisting of a netted tropical garden with hundreds of butterflies, all of which are native species to Zanzibar. The enclosure is one of Africa’s largest butterflies exhibits and provides residents and tourists of Zanzibar with an interactive and visual environment to learn about butterflies.  Our last stop on the tour is ZALA Park - a fascinating menagerie of exotic reptiles and amphibians, as well as duikers, bushbabies, and hyrax.

Various concrete compounds are dotted about the small park, and inside natural habitats have been created for snakes, monitor lizards, crabs, and chameleons, to name just a few. You may even be allowed to crawl into the large cage housing four enormous pythons!
