PRISON ISLAND (Half Day)
This is also known as the Changu Island and is situated to the west of Zanzibar Town. (30 minutes by motorboat). The island was formerly used by a slave owner as a private detention place for disobedient slaves. General Mathews bought over this island to construct a jail in 1893 and hence the name – Prison Island. It was however never used as such but it still stands. One can walk around to see the Giant Land Tortoise, some of which are over 100 years old. It has a beautiful beach where you can swim or snorkel. (Lunch is not included).
