This once upon a time’ Quarantine Island was formerly owned by an Arab and used as a private place of detention for slaves. It was bought by General Mathews and the jail (recently fully restored) was built in 1893 as a central prison in Zanzibar. It was however never utilized as such. The island was later on the quarantine station for Zanzibar, Kenya, Uganda and Tanganyika territories. There are small gazelles in the bush and birds and fauna which are not to be seen other parts of Zanzibar.
