In the morning, after breakfast at 09:00, leave on a small boat for a prison island tour. Changuu Island aka Kibandiko, Prison or Quarantine Island. is just 6 km north-west of Stone Town. The island is 800 meters long and no more than 230 meters wide. It was planned to be a prison for slaves but was also used as a coral mine. No prisoners were ever taken there so it became a quarantine station for yellow fever victims. It is now a government owned tourist resort. On the island there is a population of the endangered Aldabra giant tortoises which were originally imported from the Seychelle Islands.

In the morning, at 07:00 depart by vehicle towards the Kizimkazi village where you can board our boat to swim with dolphins.
