Spice Tour

Background Information

You will have time for lunch at Stone town before heading to Spice farm. Zanzibar is known as a spice island, exporting cloves, vanilla, nutmeg and cardamom to the world. The spices were brought over from Asia and South America and flourished in Zanzibar’s tropical climate.

Spice Tour is one of the most popular excursions on the island. Walk through the spice farm with your guide; touch, smell and taste different spices and tropical fruits. Try to guess one spice or fruit from the other, from the crushed leaves, the fruit, shoots, vines and creepers crawling up the trees. Learn about their properties, their origins and their use as medicines and in food and drink.

A visit to a spice farm village gives you an insight into local life and the opportunity to try some Swahili dishes, taste the fruits in season and try some spiced tea. Depending on the season you are visiting, you can find anything from vanilla, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, turmeric, lemon grass, cloves, ylangylang, cumin, garlic, ginger, coriander, pepper, allspice, tamarind, chilli, oregano and more. Fruits can include banana, pineapple, jackfruit, custard fruit, oranges, star fruit, tangerine, passion fruit, mango, avocado, pear, papaya, grape fruit and many others.
