Zanzibar Prison Island

Zanzibar Prison Island

Used in the old days by a slave merchant as a stopover before taking slaves into Stone Town for sell some times in the 1850’s. In the late 19th century the Sultan decided to build a jail house on the island hence the name prison island, the prison was never used and later on the island served for quarantine. A hotel has been developed here but the biggest attraction remains the giant tortoises brought from the Seychelles in Early 1900. A half hour trip by boat and a tour that takes you to see these reptiles and the ruins of the prison is an ideal getaway from the bustling Stone Town. You will also enjoying beautiful snorkeling here.
