  • Visit historic Prison Island off Zanzibar on your Tanzania Vacation

Prison Island or Changuu Island is the middle island of the three visible from Stone town. It takes approximately 30 minutes to get there by boat. The prison on this island was built in 1893 and was later used as a quarantine Hospital.

Apart from the Prison ruins, you will also see the enormous giant tortoises which are the main attraction of the island. The tortoises were brought to the island from Seychelles by Sultan Said in the 1820s. The island is a superb scenario for the photographer. A self-walking safari covers the island in 15 minutes.
