The local guide really told us some intersting aspects of this fort. Very intersting if you like that kind of history otherwise just visit the small stalls inside.

The only thing here are the walls of the fort and empty interior with some stalls selling souvenirs. The fun part was watching my daughter getting henna from one of a group of women.

You will pass the old fort several times when in Stone town. All it offers you is a photo or two and merchants that want to sell their goods to you. You won't miss a lot if you give it a skip.

You will walk pass this a lot of times, it´s not well preserved at all and their fore it´s not much to see more then to just walk by it. I guess some ppl might think it´s more interesting but for us it was not really anything worth the wile

Keep your visit short aqnd sweet. The phot opps are limited to 3 photos at best and the local shop keepers does become a bit of a drag. Only ever pay in shillings and save yourself a pocket.
