Spices & Stone Town Tour in Zanzibar

Tour Details :

Travel to Prison Island, known locally as Changuu, for a tour of this tropical wonderland. The island's most famous inhabitant, a 192-year-old tortoise, wanders the island and may be available for a photo session. After meeting some friendly reptiles, go for a swim or snorkel in the warm waters.

Your guide greets you in your hotel lobby and takes you to Stone Town, where a boat is waiting for your arrival. As you travel through the crystal-clear sea, learn all about the history of the island, which was never actually used as a proper prison. When the island comes into view, be sure to look down and spot the sea creatures hanging out in the reef below.

Land on the soft, white sand and make your way to the island's jail, which was built in 1893 with the hope of housing prisoners. Break free from jail and discover the island's freewheeling Aldabra giant tortoises, who slowly stroll across the island in search of tasty vegetation. Prison Island is now home to the only sanctuary dedicated to saving these remarkable creatures, and you have a chance to chat with the foundation's passionate preservationists. Once you get familiar with the shelled wanderers, reach down and feed them some of their favorite greenery.

Learn about the different varieties of spices as well as their uses in cooking and cosmetics before taking a trip to Maruhbal Palace, built by Sultan Barghash in 1880 to house his harem.
