Either in the morning or afternoon, we will pick you up at your hotel anywhere in Zanzibar and take you to the world-famous spice farms. Along the way, you will learn about the rich history of the island. Already ancient sailors reported islands full of scents, and Arab merchants travelled as early as the eighth century to Pemba and Unguja, the islands that make up Zanzibar, for spices. You will learn how the island got its nickname in the 15th century and learn about growing and harvesting spice plants. You’ll find out why pepper and cloves were so valuable, and you’ll probably find out for the first time that nutmeg wrap is also a very special spice. The queen of spices, cinnamon, has many healing properties in addition to its intoxicating aroma. To leave you in a frenzy, we won’t reveal all the spices you’ll smell, observe, touch, and taste.
