Excursion to Prison Island

Prison island is a small private island located 5 km off the coast of Stone city on the West coast of Zanzibar. The island received its name in 1894 after the completion of a prison built by the British government to serve Zanzibar under the first Governor, Lloyd Matthews. It can be reached by boat and is famous for its giant tortoises, which were brought here from the Seychelles in the 19th century. They say that these turtles are more than 150 years old. In their habitual habitat, turtles willingly allow themselves to be stroked and gladly accept grass from the hands of tourists, which is given to each visitor at the entrance to the protected area. And photos in an embrace with them turn out just great!
