A Rich Eco-System of
African Flora & Fauna
Lush mangrove forests, colorful coral reefs, chattering monkeys, and 150-year-old tortoises… Zanzibar is so much more than just sunbathing on the sand!
Zanzibar is home to numerous award-winning marine parks and wildlife reserves, all designed to protect local species such as the endangered red colobus monkey and the endangered Pemba flying fox, which is the largest bat species in the world.
Just a short drive from Stone Town are forests and hiking trails, or you can hop on board a boat to reach one of the many isolated, protected islands that dot the horizon — each with its own story to tell.
