Zanzibar beach vacations

½ Day Spice Tour

Since the abolition of the slave trade, spices have been at the heart of Zanzibari enterprise. The sheer variety that grow on the island highlights its strategic location as well as the depth of cultural interaction. Indeed no trip to Zanzibar could be considered complete without a visit to one of our carefully selected spice farms. This involves visiting the spice plantations to see different spices and to learn about their nature and uses, and even taste some of them right on the spot, depending on the season. In addition you can also see medicinal, cosmetic and ornamental plants as well as herbs. Some of the most interesting plants you will see include cloves, nutmeg, rambutan, lipstick, iodine plant, lemon grass, vanilla, henna and shampoo plant.

Our spice tour offers you the opportunity to indulge your senses with a kaleidoscope of smells, tastes and textures. From the punch of a chili to the refreshing succulence of green coconut flesh, this tour will awaken your senses. It also provides you with the unique opportunity to purchase these exclusive spices straight from the source. Finally we visit the Kidichi Persian baths that were built by the first Sultan of Zanzibar, Sultan Seid Said bin Sultan in 1850 and Maruhubi palace ruins built by the third Sultan of Zanzibar, Sultan Said Baraghash bin Said in 1880 which were built especially for housing 99 of his harem.
