Tour Details
Prison Island Zanzibar

7 DAYS  6 NIGHTS PACKAGE. (ONLY EXCURSIONS). Prison Island Zanzibar, also known as Changuu Island, is a small island spreading across 5.6 Km. Overcoming its turbulent history, Changuu island has become a  must-see jewel of Tanzania with the highlight attraction of being a large home for the tortoises. 

A Glance of History

Changuu Island was purchased by the first British minister of Zanzibar with an initial intention of building a prison there. 

The name Prison Island originated from the initial planning of establishing a prison. It was actually used for a brief time in the 1860s as a prison for rebellious slaves and a coral mine. 

No prison institutions were actually built on the island but rather became a quarantine station for yellow fever cases. Recently, it is  used as a popular holiday destination as a government owned tourist resort and home to a plethora of endangered Aldabra giant tortoises. 

The origin of the overflowing tortoise population of the island dates back to 1919 when the British governor of Seychelles sent a gift of four Aldabra giant tortoises to Changuu from the island of Aldabra. 

By 1955,  the population of the tortoises on the island had grown rapidly being stolen for food or to be sold as pets. A further 80 hatchlings were sent to enhance the tortoise numbers once again on the island.

Zanzibar Spice Tour
The Spice Tour is one of the most popular excursions in Zanzibar, the Spice Island. It got its nick name as a result of being one of the world’s leading producers of spices such as clove, nutmeg and cinnamon in the 19th century. Spices and herbs were originally introduced to Zanzibar by Portuguese traders in the 16th century, brought from their colonies in South America and India.
This tour is a walking tour in a spice farm (shamba). While there, you shall see how the spices, herbs and fruits grow and are cultivated. Your tour guide will describe how the crops can be used. You will be smelling and tasting spices, herbs and tropical fruits such as clove, lemongrass, nutmeg, cinnamon, turmeric, vanilla, coconuts, papaya, chili, black pepper, jackfruit, cardamom, cassava and oranges.
After the tour you will enjoy a traditional swahili lunch at the farm. Here is when you can really taste the different ways of using spices.
