Jozani Forest lies 35kms South-East of Zanzibar Town, It takes about 45 minutes driving from city centre, It's a wet and foresty with an area of about 1,000 hectares.
The jozani forest is a terrestrial and inter-tidal protected area dedicated to conservation of the biodiversity. Jozani gets funds directly from entry fees, levy on filming, research work, grants and other sources.
The income so collected each year is shared among different beneficiaries including conservation, farmland owners and central government. It is therefore true to say in a typical sharing conservation may get as much as 33 per cent. At the same time 20 per cent of the revenue collected from the Mangrove Board goes to the Conservation Association (JECA) which is dedicated to the conservation park.
At present it is the habitat for the Red Colobus Monkeys (Colobus badius kirkii) and the Blue Sykes Monkey. The Red Colobus monkey is one of the most endangered and rarest species in the world and only found in Zanzibar.
