Prison Island Trip

Country: Tanzania, United Republic Of, Region: Zanzibar, City: Zanzibar

Tour Description

This half day excursion is perfect for anyone who wants to get off the beach and get a little more action! Join us as we sail to Prison Island, also known as Changuu and Quarantine Island where you will find a conservation area dedicated to the endangered Aldabra Tortoises.
While there are babies and juveniles, some tortoises are nearly a 180 years old! After admiring our large reptile friends, take a tour of the historical prison which once used to house rebellious slaves and was later used as a quarantine site sheltering the main island from epidemics like yellow fever.
Getting a little hot? Why not go for a snorkel in the crystal clear waters that surround the island or swim and relax on the white sands. On the sail back, we’ll indulge you with some tropical fruit hoping to leave you with an extra sweet memory of your day.
