During your stay in Zanzibar, how would you like to visit some amazing caves and also enjoy a beautiful beach?
The Mangapwani Coral Cave is a large natural cavern with a freshwater pool. Local people got their drinking water here. The Slave Chamber, a dark cave cut into the coral rock, was used as a holding place to hide slaves for the illegal trade.
Illicit slave trading continued for many years after the legal trade was abolished toward the end of the 19th century. Still today, you can see the dirt path that goes from the beach to the Slave Chamber.
