What you'll do

The history of Zanzibar would be incomplete without the cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper and many other spices which brought the Sultans of Oman and the beginnings of the infamous slave trade. They can be seen in the plantations just outside Zanzibar town, and a good tour includes opportunities to dazzle the senses with fresh spices. We have developed a special Spice Tour with in depth information not only about spices, but also herbs and a detailed description about their uses in medicine cosmetics and cooking. We will show you the traditional natural herbal medicine plants and their uses, herbal creams and beauty products produced of his organically grown spices and herbs. After the tour we invite for an opulent lunch, where you can taste the spices and fruits you saw before. This is also the place to purchase fresh spices and spice oils.

Where you'll be

I will be in Stone near the Forodhani Garden and exactly at the entrance to the Old Fort. The tour itself will be offered on a Spice Farm which is 20 minutes or less drive from Stone Town near the Bububu area part of the Zanzibar Town. For guests staying out of town the trip can be arranged at an extra cost for transportation.
