The adventure will then continue at the entrance of the exotic native green forest and dive in the middle of the heart of the wild. The Jozani forest reserve lies between Chwaka bay and Uzi bay and it is the only remaining natural forest of Unguja and represents a very important refuge for the fauna of the island.

But keep your eyes open and you may be lucky enough to see Sunnis (small deer), chameleons. Visit of the school and the discovery of the small local village that dedicate the works of coconuts, the real lives of this populations, how the native enjoys their lives on the sun.
