Join us on a half-day trip to Prison Island. We will take a boat from the shores of Stone Town, setting down anchor 5 km away, on the beautiful beach of Prison Island. This tour is always private for you and your group only. The Prison Island boat is private as well.
The original name of this island was Changuu Island. It is a quarantine island and is located about 5.6 km from Stone Town. This island is about 800 meters long and 250 meters wide. What is so special about this island is the presence of endangered species of giant tortoises, brought to Zanzibar as a gift from the Seychelles in 1919. There is also a prison ruin, which suggests the name of the island. You can have the opportunity to snorkel, touch, and take photos with the tortoises.
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
Tourist may combine this tour with either stone town tour, spices tour and Jozani forest
