ZANZIBAR SPICE TOUR
Time Duration: (09:00 - 12:00 or 14:00 - 17:00)

Tasty tropical fruits & spices

Zanzibar has always been an important trade location for Spices. Its location in the Indian Ocean was deemed ideal for the spice trade worldwide. The trade in spices between India, the Middle East, Africa and Europe became even more important to the economy of Zanzibar after the slave trade was made illegal. Our spice tour will give you the chance to visit one or more spice farms, growing a variety of key spices to Zanzibar such as Cloves, Chilli, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Pepper, and Vanilla.
You will learn about the uses of the different spices, their history on the island, how they grow and best of all be able to taste them. If you wish, you will also be able to buy them directly from the farms. While you will be taken right into the heart of the Island to the spice growing area, there is more to discover other than spices. During the tour you will also encounter a selection of tropical fruits and depending on the season try some of these such as the wonderful coconut with its refreshing milk and sweet flesh or the exotic Rambutan.
The spice tour guides will also teach you about the many other uses, both cosmetic and medicinal for spices and herbs seen at the farms like the shampoo plant or the iodine plant. We recommend you bring a sun hat, sun cream and comfortable shoes.
