Today we drove to the Jazani Forest, home to several animals including the Red Colobus monkey which is only found in Zanzibar. We walked through the jungle seeing holes which were home to crabs and Speik Monkeys. After half an hour of trekking, the Colobus monkey showed itself, jumping from tree to tree. They didn’t look like what I had in my mind as I was expecting long, hairy monkeys like the Black and White Colobus you find on mainland Tanzania. After watching the monkeys for a while we decided to move on as the guide said they are known for urinating on people who hang around too long.
We continued to the Southeast Coast to visit The Residence Resort, White Sand Villas, Kisiwa and Breezes, where I would spend the night. All were beautiful accommodations with stunning white powder beaches. This time of year is kite surfing season and people come from around the world to master the sport.
