Home to the island’s most famous and photographed resident, the Zanzibar red colobus monkey, as well as the Ader’s duiker, Sykes monkeys, bush babies, African civet, giant elephant shrews, and chameleons as well as around 83 species of birds.
From Jozani Forest the guide will take you to Seaweed Center (Subject to tides as we need to visit during low tides)
The Seaweed Center is a social responsible initiative that provides over 40 female seaweed farmers in Paje, Zanzibar, with an opportunity to better their lives and benefit their community. The project comprises seaweed farms on the Paje Beach, a gathering site for seaweed processing as well as a seaweed products factory.
Visitors on a tour to the Sea Weed Center get a rare opportunity to experience the daily life of a seaweed farming woman, the facilities and the capacity building activities that the Center provides. Visitors are invited to go out to the beach farms to plant, tender or harvest seaweed for a hand-ons experience on ocean agriculture which is an important economic activity for many women living on Zanzibar’s East and Southern Coast line.
The tour will lead to Kuza Cave, which is a short drive from the Seaweed Center. Kuza cave is an ancient limestone jungle cave with crystal clear turquoise fresh water. The area around the cave is a peaceful nature preserve for wildlife that includes Red Colobus Monkeys, colourful butterflies, many birds, chindi and bush babies.
The trip will end at the Rock restaurant, another 15 min drive from the Kuza Cave. In its unique position in / on the waters of the Indian Ocean, The Rock is a charming, exclusive restaurant that in a very short time has become one of the icons of this exotic island. One of Zanzibar’s most popular and sought-after attractions.
The restaurant is reached off the beach on foot at low tide or by boat at high tide. Guests can if they wish to wade out. The boat service is offered with our compliments.
Payment for Lunch can be made to rock directly.
