  • Prison Island, once a prison for errant slaves, is a small island found about 5.6 km off the coast of Stone town. The island now provides sanctuary for the endangered Aldabra giant tortoise. Listed as highly vulnerable on the IUCN Red List, these giant tortoises are constantly under threat from poachers.

  • ______________________________________________The people of Zanzibar are known for their friendliness.
  • The locals are generally helpful and welcoming towards visitors. There is an island vibe outside of Stone Town’s bustle, a laid-back slow pace to life, and travel is relatively safe. Remember to be respectful of the Muslim norms, by dressing appropriately and not drinking alcohol in public places.
