Tour description

Zanzibar island in Tanzania offers a variety of attractions, some of which you will not be able to find anywhere else.
One of the most interesting tours we offer in Zanzibar is a Spice Tour. Have you ever visited a spice plantation? Most probably not. If you are heading to Zanzibar, you should definitely make sure to experience this. Spice tour is a walking tour around a spice farm which gives visitors an opportunity to see different types of spices, herbs and seasonal fruits and the tour will be about 3 hours.

In the tour, your local guide will explain how spices are grown and cultivated and also you will get a chance to smell and taste spices and fruits and your guide will tell you how spices are used by local people.

At the end of tour you will see a coconut tree climber who will show you how to climb a coconut tree and while he is climbing he will sing a song by name of 'Hakuna Matata', after that there will be a time for anyone who wants buy any spices in our local spices

Spices that you are going to see:

  • Clove
  • Cinnamon 
  • Cardamon

  • Vanilla
  • Tumeric
  • Ginger
  • Lemon grass

Meeting point 

The spice farm is at the countryside in Dole village and it's 15km from stone town, so we have to take a private car which costs 30$ go and return but it will be more than 30$ for a big group or if you have your own vehicle you can come   to our firm directly.
