Rates for Jozani forest trip

Hello,

we are stopping at a hotel in Jambiani and have noticedthat the rates for 2 people to visit the Jozani forest are $65-00 per person. This incudes a guide, transfers, lunch and admittance fee.

Would it be cheaper to book this trip from Stone Town or is this a reasonable price to pay?

Thanks in advance.

Step onto the deck of our dhow, relax and let us sail you away on a magical sunset cruise to end your day. The sunset cruise leaves in the late afternoon from in front of the Zanzibar Serena Inn and cruises along the Zanzibar (Unguja) coast, slicing through the clear turquoise water.

The hustle and bustle of busy people in Stone Town grow faint in the distance until they seem only a memory. Music takes over, the butler serves canapés and keeps your glass topped up with your choice of beers, wine, cocktails or sodas, encouraging you to sink back into the cushions and enjoy the romance of Africa while watching the scenery drift by.

Onboard, there is a butler and personal guide who will accompany you on your cruise and give you a tour of Stone Town from the water as well as be able to answer any questions that you may have. The sun sets, changing the sky from shades of pinks and blues to magnificent golden colours as you sail back towards the glimmering lights of Stone Town in the distance with the wind gently blowing you back to shore.

The crew onboard are all qualified and experienced and have the needs of our clients and their safety as their top priority at all times. All vessels are covered by full public liability insurance and are fitted with life jackets and marine safety equipment.

will charge 60usd per person

Hallo Rosenbaum,

2 years ago we visit Jozani forest,

We switch over from Stone Town to the east cost.

We took a taxi and ask the driver to stop at Jozani and wait for us.(they all do)and after that bring us to the east cost.

We paid for the 2 of us 35 Dollar for the taxi and the fee for Jozani included a guide about 15 Dollar.for 2.

Mabey now a litlle more because the price off petrol is rising.

We loved Jozani, don't miss it.

Hi

It used to be that the price also included a guided tour of the Mahogany forest as well as the Kirks colobus monkey visit, well worth doing.
