Tour overview

Earning its name as a former prison for slaves, and a quarantine station for Kenya, Uganda and then Tanganyika. Nowadays the island gives you the chance to escape for some peace and quiet. A hundred years old tortoise acts as an unlikely overseer of the island and you cannot help but wonder what tales they might tell if only they could talk

Approximately 1 kilometer wide, the location is perfect for swimming and snorkeling after a stroll around the island. Keep the best for last because it is really like diving in to champagne because the water is so clear.
