Full information about Slave Chambers, Bunkers and Mangapwani

First stop on the tour is the historical Slave Chamber site, where slaves were kept after the official bank of slave trade in Zanzibar. These are underground chambers that are known to have been used to keep slaves Рthere are many of which there is no reliable record of.

Then you will continue to Mangapwani, to see the beautiful beach, caves and old World War II bunkers and viewing tower.

The bunkers were constructed by the British during the World War II in 1939-1945. They used them as a defensive military fortification. The bunkers were also sometimes used as hospitals to attend the wounded soldiers. Next to the bunkers there is a tower which was constructed at a strategic point to make it easy for the British soldiers to spot the enemy  trying to approach the land from the sea.

There is a possibility to spend some time for swimming at a beautiful and peaceful Mangapwani beach after the excursion.
