Jozani Forest/Mangrove Canoe
Off road and On road
After 90-120 minutes ( all day 50 km) we reach the lush and green Jozani Forest, home for the indigenous Red Colobus Monkey who allow you to come really close exploring their tree life. We take a walk in the surrounding lush forest where also the Blue Sykes Monkey can be seen.
20 minutes from Jozani lies Muugoni. Rama meets us to guide us through the village he loves- thus you will get a real experience of life behind the tourist scenes. While we visit homes and come close to the people being at home cooking and making coconut leaf roofs, Ramas wife prepares us a tasty lunch.
After lunch we go down to the mangrove. On the way Rama shares his knowledge about the fruits and medical plants. At the mangrove our captain is waiting to bring us out with his traditional wood canoe used by the fishermen. When high tide we will visit the “bird island”- a cluster of threes in the mangrove and home for thousands of various big birds. After an hour discovering the mangrove it is time to return home before it gets dark.
