Dolphin Watching & Jozani Forest Tour takes you to Kizimkazi Fishing Village along the southwest coast of Zanzibar. Kizimkazi village is located about 50 Kilometers from Stone Town and 20 Kilometers to the east coast of Zanzibar.


Kizimkazi, which is reputed to once have been the capital of Zanzibar. A small village consisting of two adjoining settlements, Kizimkazi Dimbani to the north and Kizimkazi Mkunguni to the south, it features a small beach where guests can relax or go diving, swimming or snorkeling. It is also regularly visited by long-snouted, spinner and bottlenose dolphins.


Herald for its friendly schools of dolphin, there is a fair chance you will get to watch them up close and personal. The best times for "close encounters" are during periods of slack water (high or low tide), especially in the morning at 0700 Hours.


Swimming alongside the dolphins is best done wearing snorkeling equipment. The Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins are found in the coastal shallows throughout the year. During the daytime they often come close to shore to rest, feed and socialize.


On your way back to your hotel, your guide will stop and visit ZALA Park and Jozani Forest National Park. The Jozani Forest Reserve is the last sanctuary in the world for the rare red colobus monkey, which is endemic to Zanzibar.


The 484-acre reserve, which is the largest area of mature forest left on Zanzibar, is located 35kms from Stone Town in the central eastern region of Zanzibar island. The forest is also home to Syke's monkeys, bush pigs and nocturnal Zanzibar leopards.


A series of nature trails lead through various different types of habitat, which feature over 40 species of birds including the African pygmy kingfisher, little greenbul, dark-backed weaver and the Fischer's turaco.


Your tour will be led by a well-trained guide who can offer information on the other inhabitants of the forest, which include; the red-bellied coast squirrel, the endangered Aders' duiker, the Zanzibar suni, the black-and-white rufous elephant shrew and the tree hyraxes.


The forest also offers a board walk, which leads through the mangrove forests at its southern end, which is an excellent place to spot the rare mangrove kingfisher.

Zanzibar Dolphin Watching & Jozani Forest Detailed Itinerary

This is Full Day Tour, the main Attraction being able to swim close to the dolphin, actually its swimming with the Dolphin. Being very social themselves, if you are luck you even get to play with them.


Situated on the southern point of the island, Kizimkazi fishing village is home to several schools of bottle-nosed dolphins and Humpback dolphins, which are sighted following a short boat trip from the village.


Kizimkazi is the dolphin watching centre of Zanzibar. These shallow coastal waters offer the dolphins a reliable food supply and they are a good place to nurse calves. About 150 bottlenose and 50 humpback dolphins inhabit this area. We take our Boats to search for dolphins, and if you’re lucky, swim with them.

Please Note that this Tour is subject to Weather Conditions

African Spice Safaris has its staff at Kizimkazi and if the weather is not appropriate for the tour we will inform you on the morning of the Tour and postpone it to the next day.


Kizimkazi is also the site of a 12th century mosque, the earliest evidence of Islam in East Africa, and is thus worth a visit for both natural and cultural reasons.


The trip includes transport from either Stone Town or Hotel in the East or North Coast, guide, boat, snorkeling equipment and lunch. Also Included is entry fees, transport, boat hire and lunch.


After Lunch we visit Jozani Forest, Zanzibar's first and only National Park is centered on Jozani Forest, the largest area of mature forest found within Zanzibar.


You will learn more about Jozani forest Conservation, Jozani Forest Nature Trail, where you can stroll at your leisure to visit The Mama Mtondoo - or the Mother Mahogany, thought to be over 200 years old, or see the two trees in one - the strangler fig and its partner - the sycamore fig, or view the raffia fern which boasts the largest leaf in the world.


Keep an eye open for some of the 100 species of butterfly that inhabit the forest some as big as your hand, or watch out for the small but brightly colored sun birds that feed on the nectar from the many beautiful tropical flowers that can be found.


Listen for the eerie booming and cackles of Syke's monkeys and the Zanzibar Red Colobus or perhaps you will be lucky enough to spot the elusive Ader's duiker or even, the near extinct Zanzibar Leopard.


During the tour you will also see Jozani Forest Red Colobus Monkeys, unlike their more widespread and adaptable cousins, the Black and White Colobus, are a rain forest species that are now confined to very small areas of equatorial forest in tropical Africa. It is therefore a rare treat to be able to see them in Zanzibar and a sighting of them must be welcomed as a real privilege.
