Ngezi Forest Tour

Ngezi, Pemba

3 hrs Guided Tour

Overview

The dense and wonderfully lush forest at Ngezi is one of the last remaining areas of primary forest that once covered western Pemba. It’s notable in that it resembles the highland rainforests of East Africa more than the lowland forests found on Zanzibar. The 1476-hectare reserve is a true double canopy with an upper layer of mgulele, mwavi, mtondoo and mvule trees towering up to 40m high with lianas snaking between them providing swings for raucous monkeys. You'll find the visitor centre 4km west of Konde on the road to Ras Kigomasha.

What You Can Expect

The Ngezi Peninsula is the northernmost point on Pemba. Much of the area is taken up by the Ngezi Forest, which is the last remains of a huge tract of indigenous forest which used to cover most of Pemba. Ngezi is home to the Pemba Flying Fox, a bat endemic to the island. The forest itself is a protected area. On the east side of the Ngezi peninsula is Vumawimbi Beach, an immaculate beach with miles of white sand flanked by a pristine forest. On the western side is found the “Pango ya Watoro” or the cave of the fugitives.


If you are interested we can take some more time with you visiting the “Cultural areas” these are parts of the forest which are sacred and people periodically sweep and clean to appease their ancestors. These sacred place called “MIZIMU” are used for prayers, requests and offerings to the spirits of the dead. Local villagers recognize five such sites.
