Prison Island

Prison Island

Changuu Island, Prison or Quarantine Island, is a small island located 6 km from the northwest coast of Stone Town.

The island was used as a prison for rebellious slaves in 1860s and also functioned as a coral mine. In 1893 a prison complex was built there but never used for prisoners because it became a quarantine station for yellow fever for around 6 months, then it became a popular holiday destination. Now it is a government-owned touristic resort and houses a collection of endangered Aldabra giant tortoises which were originally a gift from the British governor of the Seychelles.

Stone Town

Stone Town

Stone Town is the old part of Zanzibar City, the main city of Zanzibar.

It was the former capital of the Zanzibar Sultanate, and the flourishing centre of the spice trade as well as the slave trade in the 19th century. When the United Republic of Tanzania was formed, Zanzibar maintained a semi-autonomous status, with Stone Town as the seat of local government. Stone Town is a city of prominent historical and artistic importance in East Africa. Its architecture reflects the diverse influences underlying the Swahili culture, giving a unique mixture of Arab, Persian, Indian and European elements. For this reason, the town was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000.
