Tour Details

Take a local dhow ride to this beautiful small island just 30 to 40 minutes offshore from Stone Town. The crystal clear waters and fantastic views of Stone Town from the sea make the boat ride very enjoyable. This historical island was used for the confinement of slaves in the late 1800s, and a quarantine station for lepers victims for Zanzibar and the mainland. The jail itself was built in 1893. A brief tour of the prison is informative and affords fantastic photographic opportunities.
Now it is more commonly known as the home of Giant Alderman Tortoises colony, that were imported from Seychelles in the late 19th century, some of which are over a hundred years old! You have the opportunity to feed and pet the tortoises. You may take a stroll through the forested interior where you will see a wide variety of birds, colourful peacocks, bats, and beautiful butterflies. Keep your eyes peeled too for the shy and elusive Dickers – an unusual tiny antelope species.

It is fringed with a beautiful coral reef, ideal for snorkelling, and has a lovely white beach to sunbathing. This tour is a great way to learn some history and wildlife, and also to see Stone Town from the sea as many old maritime legends would have done.
