The registration at the park headquarters was a bit slow, and they were short on guides so we had to join up with another group. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and it was peaceful walking through the dense, old growth forest. At first, we saw a few butterflies, a buffalo-head spider, and some rather shy monkeys. Then we came to the main attraction of Jozani Forest - a family of red colobus monkeys who are more tame than we had ever imagined. We could get as close to the monkeys as we wanted, and they climbed, jumped, or just napped in the trees around us. One guy in the group we had to join put his hands out and had a monkey standing in his hands, though the guides warned him to stop as either he or the monkey could catch a disease from this. While I was filming a video of the monkeys, I had to duck down as a branch hit my head - I looked up to see a little monkey swaying on the branch as a guide was laughing saying the monkey was "playing" with me by jumping onto a branch so close to my head that he had almost landed on my head. This trip included an African safari, but the Red Colobus monkeys of Jozani Forest were right up there with our most amazing wildlife experiences. There is also a mangrove boardwalk at Jozani Forest with mud crabs and many varieties of mangrove trees. A couple hours is plenty, and you can stop by the nearby Zanzibar Butterfly Center on the way out for ten or fifteen minutes in their butterfly enclosure where local farmers "farm" butterflies to sell internationally. Jozani Forest is definitely worth a day trip from any part of the island.
