Experience Zanzibar Spice Tour, Zanzibar

The history of Zanzibar would be incomplete without the cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper and many other spices which are essential ingredient in a Zanzibar’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. They can be seen in the plantations just outside Zanzibar town, and an organized spice tour is probably the best way of seeing the island.

While going on a walking tour, the local guide will pluck bunches of leaves from various bushes and ask visitors to guess what they are. Most will be found in the average Kitchen spice rack.
