tortoise, Prison Island

Zanzibar, Tanzania, 1995

Categories: animals, tanzania

Prison Island is a short boat trip from Zanzibar town. There we saw the ruins of the prison, swam and snorkeled above the coral reefs. It is easy to find these large tortoises on the island. They move very slowly; the big ones must weigh over 200 kg.
