The "criminal" here can appreciate 360 degrees without a dead end, beautiful sea view, East Africa, small island recommended!
Prison Island, also known as Changgu Island, is a holiday island attached to Zanzibar Island. It is located about 4 kilometers north of Stone Town and only takes 30-40 by boat. I can reach in minutes, here I enjoy the most beautiful sea view! The color of the sea water varies greatly with distance and light and shadow, rich and beautiful.
is called prison island because the late 19th century, the British government plans to build a prison dedicated to imprisoning crimes in Zanzibar, prisons Although it was completed, it did not hold any criminals from beginning to end. On the contrary, when the yellow fever was raging, the built prison became a isolation place for yellow fever patients.
Today, it has become a famous tourist resort, and many Europeans will bring their families to the resort during their holidays. Its so great that this small island was discovered by me!
In addition to the source of the name, the charming seascape, the longevity elephant turtle on the prison island is also a major feature.
1919, the Governor of Seychelles gave the Governor of Zanzibar four elephants to Changgu Island. Since then, it has become a paradise for these giant elephant tortoises.
The tortoise is the largest terrestrial turtle species and they are very long-lived. It is said that their average life span can reach more than 150 years old. Every one here is like an age mark on the back of the turtle. I found that the one with the longest life is already 190 years old!
Elephant turtles are gentle and like plants, so you can experience the zero-distance feeding of turtles on the prison island.
Honestly, although the turtles have long been heard, but after seeing them, I was shocked by their size some turtles even had a lap than adult males. They are like stones in the shade, standing still and waiting for our feeding.
Come and experience a lot of tourists who are feeding turtles. If you still have children, then I think this is a great place to be close to nature!
Zanzibar Island has a crystal clear blue in the daytime, and also has a slightly orange in the evening. I always like to wander around the beach at sunset. On one weekend, Muslims ran to the beach to celebrate, and all of them went out.
Muslim girls wore robes, wrapped headscarves, danced on the beach, and the sun shone on them, like a dancing elf. On weekdays, religious people are not allowed to take pictures. At this moment, I was warmly invited to be a photographer. The sunset of the day was a little unexpected.
