Description : Embark for a 30minutes boat journey and discover an island full of mysteries. First used by an Arab to keep slaves brought from the African continent, Changuu Island, also known as Prison Island, was then meant to host violent criminals. A prison was built there in 1893 by the British First Minister at that time, Lloyd Matthews. But after the construction was complete, the island was left with no prisoners and used as a quarantine place for boats infected with diseases. In the late 1910s, the government of Seychelles gave giant tortoises as a gift, and those were kept on Changuu Island since then. Their number has dropped for a few years, due to a lot of stealing, but Zanzibar’s government, with the help of World Animal Protection, managed to protect them better and their number has grown.

Whatever you choose, you won’t forget about your day.
