Spice Farm & Jozani – Chwaka Bay National Park Tour

The Spice Tour is one of the most popular excursions in Zanzibar, the Spice Island. Zanzibar was one of the world’s leading producers of spices such as clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. Tour takes you to an organic farm with a wide variety of plants around the year. You don’t just see, you also touch, smell and taste.

Once on the Prison Island, you have the opportunity to feed and pet the tortoises, if you have time you may also like to take a stroll through the forested interior where you will see a wide variety of birds, colorful peacocks, bats, and beautiful butterflies. Keep your eyes peeled too for the shy and elusive Duikers – an unusual tiny antelope species. 

 

The Jozani forest, a natural reserve, lies 35 km South East from Zanzibar City between Chwaka Bay and Uzi Bay.

The only remaining natural forest of Unguja covers an area of 10 square km. The forest, with trees older than 100 years, is the sanctuary for some very interesting animals, including the Red Colobus monkey, the small Zanzibar leopard, blue monkey, chameleon, mongoose, bush baby, tree hyrax, bush pig, civet, and two small antelope species found only on Zanzibar, Zanzibar duiker and sunni.

Itinerary

The tour starts with a pick up from the Hotel at 09:00hrs (depends on your hotel location).

Begin your private tour to Spice Farm. Discover how these islands produce cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and black pepper. For this reason, the Zanzibar Archipelago, together with Tanzania’s Mafia Island, is sometimes called the “Spice Islands”. 

 

There are many spice farms in Zanzibar and for the next portion of the tour; you will visit a real organic spice farm. When you arrive, the spice farm guide will describe how the spices are grown and used as medication and flavor in dishes. See spices like vanilla, cardamom, nutmeg, and many more. It will be possible to touch, smell and taste the spices and herbs directly from plants. 

 

Later, take the opportunity to join a cassava leaf harvest, make coconut milk, and practice some cooking. Even more, a coconut tree climber will pick some fresh young coconut fruits for you to try. 

End the trip with the opportunity to purchase spices from the shop (cash only).

 

After the Spice Farm tour, you will visit Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park.

The 2,500-hectare park contains diverse habitats, including groundwater forest, coral rag forest, mangrove swamps, and salt marshes. 

Venture into the jungle of Jozani Forest to spot the rare species of Red Colobus Monkeys (the most famous and endearing residents of the park) as they swing and howl in the trees.

Jozani forest lies in a shallow trough in a fossil coral bed between the mangrove filled bays of Chwaka and Uzi. The park is home to many unique animals such as Adder’s duiker, Sykes’ monkeys, and bush babies.
