Get up close and personal with wild red colobus monkeys on Zanzibar

vEcotourism ambassador Ian Redmond recently touched down on the beautiful island of Zanzibar for a 24-hour whirlwind visit. Trekking through the island Ian encountered various interesting landscapes which vEcotourism will shortly be shaping into a full-fledged multi-pano, multi-hotspot vEcotour.

As a taster, we have put together a quick vEcotour of Jozani Forest in Zanzibar’s only national park, where Ian was able to hang out with endangered Red Colobus monkeys which have become surprisingly habituated in the area. Just 2,000 Red Colobus monkeys remain in Zanzibar with less than half of these protected within the national park.

Click on the map below or the image above to launch the tour and spend time alongside Ian with these small monkeys with crazy hair!

We hope you enjoy this taster of the full-fledged vEcotour we have planned. Check back soon as more panos and media hotspots are added to take you on an immense, immersive adventure through Zanzibar.
