Zanzibar and Spice is a romantic entanglement that dates back to the 16th century. The history of Zanzibar would be incomplete without the cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper and many other spices which are essential ingredients in a Zanzibari’s everyday life.

Join us in learning more about the important piece of Zanzibar life on our special Spice Tour with in-depth information not only about spices but also organically grown herbs and detailed descriptions about their uses in traditional dishes, as cures for ailments and even for dyeing traditional ceremonial outfits for weddings and festivals. This tour is also a fantastic opportunity to see the countryside and rural areas of Zanzibar and also connect with local people.

Our guided walking tour passes through villages and spice plantations as spice-farm workers climb trees, seek out specific plants and cut off the bark, letting you see, feel and taste everything. You will be decorated with palm-leaf accessories such as ties, rings, bracelets and glasses. You will also have an opportunity to taste some of the exotic fruits of Zanzibar and buy some of your own fresh spices if you choose.

After the tour, we invite you for an opulent traditional Swahili lunch served in a local house, where you can taste the spices in the food.

The tour also includes a visit to the Kidichi Persian Baths built in 1850 by the first Sultan of Zanzibar as a gift for his Persian wife.

The half-day trip includes transport, guide, entrance fees and a superb lunch.
