CHANGUU – PRISON ISLAND TOUR

You can explore this beautiful island, which is an ideal place for a walk, on a relaxing half-day excursion from Stone Town. The view of Stone Town from the island is breathtaking especially at night. We will give you a short-guided tour around the island. After the guided tour you can swim in the crystal water or explore the glorious coral reefs by snorkeling.

Tour Overview:

PRISON ISLAND TOUR

The tour starts with a pick up from the Hotel at 09:00hrs. You will drive to stone-town where you will embark on boat to the Island. This Island is just 3.5 miles (6km) from Stone Town, and was the site of a prison complex built in the late 1800s during British colonial rule.

Changuu is named after the Swahili name of a fish which is common in the seas around it. Take off on a day trip to the picturesque secluded Prison Island on a private 3-hour tour, and discover the rich history and beautiful natural surroundings of this location.

Meet your guide in Zanzibar, and then enjoy the ride to the island on a traditional dhow or modern engine speed boat. Learn how this small island gained its name and explore the place that is now home to more than 50 tortoises, some over 100 years old.

Feed the tortoises and take up-close pictures with them, as you keep a look out for the peacocks and antelope that also live there.

After discovering the island and its history, take the opportunity to snorkel in the clear waters off the coast amongst tropical fish and colorful coral.
At the end of your tour, return to Zanzibar, where you’ll be dropped off in the city center, or to the Zanzibari Boutique Hotel.

  • Discover Prison Island and meet the tortoises that live there

What people say about us
I did the tour with 3 friends. It was a total of 10 days. It was indescribable. Our guide is a great guy, you can tell that he has been doing this job for years. He was able to show us all the animals. Lions, rhinos, hippos, giraffes, even the rare cheetahs and leopards. If you have never been on safari, you should not miss this experience. We felt very comfortable the whole time. The lodges including service, equipment and service were also first class. Hence 5 stars.

We have enjoyed our safari with SafariBaseTanzania so much that we are already thinking of going back. Everything has been very great, he has explained details of the nature of the place, the culture, everything that makes Africa unique. We have appreciated the local food as well as the entire lodging experience. It is an unmissable expedition, thank you for taking care of us in all the details, for the laughs and the good times.
