Trip Planner: Africa / Tanzania / Zanzibar Archipelago / Zanzibar Island / Zanzibar City / Stone Town / Prison Island - Changuu Private Island
A small, once private island drifting in the deep blue waters of the Indian Ocean, Prison Island - Changuu Private Island has a long and intriguing history. Used in the late 19th century as a slave prison and then a quarantine zone for yellow fever, today the island caters to tourism with several recently developed guesthouses looking out over its pristine northwest beaches. Arrive by boat and discover this small but characterful spot, home to a group of endangered Aldabra giant tortoises--some of whom have taken up residence in the old abandoned prison. A restaurant on the island provides welcome refreshment. Arrange to visit Prison Island - Changuu Private Island and other attractions in Zanzibar City using our Zanzibar City tour itinerary planner.
