Turtles On Prison Island
  •  Tanzania
The officially name is Chumbuu island, but everyone knows it as ‘Prison Island’. Originally slaves were kept on that island, before they’re sold to Arabic destinations. Although there was built a prison after the era of slavery, it was never used as such. Instead it became a quarantine island in times of yellow fever epidemic. From the buildings are not much to see anymore. the main attractions is the turtle sanctuary with Aldabra Giant Turtles, brought from the Seychelles.
