CHAPWANI ISLAND

LOCATION Stone Town, Zanzibar
A slightly more romantic and upmarket choice than Prison Island, Chapwani or Grave Island, is the site of a luxury hotel, but say visitors who come to eat and drink in the bar and restaurant are permitted. Chapwani is the site of a British naval cemetery, the final resting place of sailors who perished while serving in Zanzibar. The victims of the world war one attack on the HMS Pegasus by the German warship Konigsberg are also buried and decipher the ages and causes of death of the servicemen, many died from a tropical disease, or were killed in skirmishes with local slavers.

Chapwani also has a beautiful white sandy beach and a small population of duikers, a type of miniature antelope, as well as some interesting birdlife.
