Prison Island Excursion

As the name suggests, Prison Island was once the home of those banished from Zanzibar - exiled if you like, on a tropical island. Doesn't sound that bad?

Today it is a tropical paradise close to Stone Town and home to some of the biggest tortoises you may ever see.

The Prison Island Excursion allows you to get close to these massive creatures to truly appreciate their size - have your cameras at the ready.

Why do the Prison Island Excursion?

Tropical island paradise
Once home to exiles
Huge Tortoises roam free
Mystical and interesting
