We visited on our way travelling from Nungwi to Stone Town by private transfer. Entrance was US$10 to see the monkeys with a private guide (who also expects a tip). You will walk into the forest and see the monkeys but that is about all...More

Ridiciously expensive compared to what you get! We paid 50 USD per person (the hotel took 100 USD per person for the same tour) and the drive was 1½ hour. We saw less than 10 monkeys, a boring forest and 2 crabs in the mangrove....More

Gorgeous forest, nice guides giving you a lot information about monkey but also about plants and the red colobus monkey are just a hit to see how they play. I want to visit them again next year.

Hi, we are travelling to Zanzibar in a week's time and want to visit Jozani. Can anyone let us know what time the park/reserve opens for tours?

Maria Looks like its open daily from 8am with peak times mid morning. Enjoy.
Do you have to go through an external tour agency to visit Jozani forest or can you show up at the reserve and pay on the spot for one of their guides? Thanks.

You can just show up. There are "guides" there at the park office/entrance. Good folks, beautiful reserve!

7,50 USD (or 10 in case you pay in local currency) per person. Guide optional, but recommended. Guide is free but you should tip about 10 USD per hour.
