The tiny suni antelope were originally brought to &Beyond Mnemba Island from Jozani Forest with the aim of diversifying and increasing the population of these rare little animals. Life has been so good for the suni on Mnemba, where they have no natural predators, that they have been breeding twice, rather than once, every year. With numbers increasing so rapidly, periodical relocations of the species have ensured that there is enough space and food for the suni. Over the years, more than 250 suni have been moved to 13 sites throughout Zanzibar.

Suni numbers remain ‘carefully monitored and recently 15 new individuals were introduced onto the island to diversify the gene pool.
