All about the trip
The history of Zanzibar would be incomplete without the cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper and many other spices which are an essential ingredient in a Zanzibari’s everyday life, it is the island’s connection to spices and herbs. Zanzibar and spice is a romantic entanglement that dates back to the 16th century. Apart from being an important commodity on the trade routes, they can be seen in the plantations just outside Zanzibar town. This is also a fantastic opportunity to see the countryside and rural areas of Zanzibar and also connect with local people.
This guided walking tour passes through villages and spice plantations, a walk through the farms as spice farms workers climb trees, seek out specific plants, and cut off various barks, letting you see, feel, and taste everything. You will be decorated with palm-leaf accessories such as ties, rings, bracelets, and glasses. At the spice farms, you will have an opportunity to taste some of the exotic fruits of Zanzibar. Spice farms are the best place to buy fresh spices directly from the source.
