Prison Island Boat Trip

Changuu Island, Zanzibar

3 hrs Guided Tour

Overview

Both morning and afternoon departures to Prison Island are available, and the trip includes hotel transfers and all entrance fees.


Highlights

Visit Lloyd Mathew's Architecture

You have the opportunity to feed and pet the tortoises

Relax on the white sands of the Prison Island

Choice of morning or afternoon departure


What You Can Expect

You will be picked up from your hotel and driven to the excursion spot. The Aldabra Giant Tortoise sanctuary is a major tourist lure and the oldest tortoise is 192 years old. The turtles are not indigenous and are magisterial creatures, weighing in at an average of 200 kg some are as old as over 100 years (4 turtles are 150 years). You can feed them at a fee paid at the Island, but watch out for their snapping beaks.


Other marine life is also reasonably rich and Changuu provides good snorkelling. It is by no means the most extensive or varied snorkelling spot off the coast of Zanzibar, but being so close to Stone Town and so easily accessible makes it ideal for those who want to see ‘under the sea’ a little while on a city break. The island’s restaurant, Matthews, is good and well-renowned. This is especially so considering the restaurant’s charming atmosphere and good sea view. You will then be dropped off at the hotel after the excursion.
