After exploring the markets and shops, walk through a spice farm and learn about the properties, origins, and use of certain spices. You will discover coconut and pineapple plantations, and many other local spice trees. Get a chance to taste and savor local tropical fruits straight from the farm.
Stone Town city tour Zanzibar spice farm tour starts with a visit to Zanzibar’s colorful market. A market is a place buzzing with fresh produce, friendly people, and a great vibe! You can buy all kinds of fresh products from cheese, meat, fish, fruits, and veggies. We continue on to the site of the cathedral built-in 1874.
The cathedral signifies a potent time in Zanzibar’s history and stands in the sight of a past slave market, its high altar standing on the exact site of the whipping post. Slavery was abolished in 1873 through a decree passed by the then-current Sultan of Zanzibar.
From here we visit the residence of the late Sultans of Zanzibar, ‘Tip Tip House’, the Old Fort, ‘Peoples Palace’, and the House of Wonders’, full of intrigue and vivid history from a bygone era. The tour will take you through the narrow streets of the old stone town, the heart of Zanzibar’s vivacious history with time for shopping.
Then visit the Maruhubi Palace Ruins built by the third Sultan of Zanzibar named Sultan Said Baraghash Bin Said in 1880 which were built especially for housing 99 of his harem. For a depth of cultural interaction, we visit one of our carefully selected spice farms.
This involves visiting the spices growing areas to see different spices and learn their nature, uses, and taste some of them right on the spot depending on the season. In addition, it includes visits to the famous spices-producing area where you can see medicinal, cosmetics, ornamental plants, and herbs.
Most of the interesting items are cloves, nutmeg, rambutan, lipstick, iodine plant, lemongrass, vanilla, henna, shampoo plant, and more. Our spice tour offers you the opportunity to indulge your senses with a kaleidoscope of smells, tastes, and textures.
