“Green haven in the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

This secondary growth forest, a remnant of a sawmill facilities is a host a diverse biodiversity in the island. Hiking in its vicinity you will be entertained by the vervet blue balls monkeys, an array of butterflies in different awesome colors and sizes. The pond in the forest always reward you with a sighting of the different avian species. The Pemban yellow owl, Pemban sunbird, Red breasted pigeon and the Pemban bird of paradise are a sight to behold.

“Close-up and natural, and great mangrove boardwalk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

A rare chance to enjoy a leisurely walk in magroves and watch wild primates at very close quarters. Excellent initiative and the guides are very motivated and keen to share their knowledge.

“Short walk and you are surrounded!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Easy access. This time, there were more tourists, but if you walked 100 yards past them, there were other families of colobus monkeys...and you could watch them in quiet, by yourself.
