List of wildlife tourist attraction in Zanzibar
The word wildlife is used interchangeably with animals. When I say wildlife tourist attractions, I mean animals acting as a tourist attraction. There are various reasons why people travel to Zanzibar, some travel to just relax and prepare for their honeymoon and weddings, some go there to enjoy all the beach life by visiting all the various islands with nice beaches, some are interested in the spice tour, other just want to see history through the eyes of stone town. The reasons for travels are sometimes personal and unknown to others but what I know is that people travel to fulfill their travel dreams by realizing their ambitions. If you visit Zanzibar just for the sake of wildlife, here is the list of places I would expect you to visit.
The prison island
The prison island acquired its name from the prison which was constructed by the sultan at that time to lock his rebellious slaves however the prison was never used and the ruins of it plus the Arab house still exist on the island. Today, the prison island is home to the giant tortoise sanctuary. The tortoises found in this sanctuary are over 100 years. It is interesting to see the slow creatures living in harmony and feeling happy when they see humans. One thing that you are prohibited to do is to touch and feel the tortoises. So if you are on a wildlife adventure trip in Zanzibar, get some time and visit the prison island.
Jozani forest is found in the south of the islands. The forest is home to wide endemic species like the Zanzibar red colobus monkeys. These monkeys are what have made this forest so popular. On your visit, you shall hear various sounds coming through the forest which signals their presence. You shall then be able to see the lovely creatures always in a playful mood as they jump from branches to others. Use that opportunity to take as many photos as you can.
Zanzibar butterfly center.
The people of Zanzibar thought very careful about this butterfly center and I can guarantee that it is one of the most beautiful and unique butterfly centers in Africa. There are several species of different butterfly from all across the islands. The centers offer their visitor such an great views of butterfly while learning and studying their lives carefully.
This park is not like other national park rather a park which houses amphibians and reptiles. There are several species of reptiles and amphibians to view during your visit however this park is not for the lighthearted. If you have phobia for those creatures, I would to tell that take precaution otherwise you shall be in for a surprise.
