Tour Overview:

Stone Town & Spice Farm Tour
The tour starts with a pick up from the Hotel at 09:00hrs.
Begin your private tour in Stone Town, a city of prominent historical and artistic importance in East Africa.
Its architecture, mostly dating back to the 19th century, reflects the diverse influences underlying Swahili culture, giving a unique mixture of Arab, Persian, Indian and European elements. For this reason, the town was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. Start by exploring the Old Slave Market site and Anglican Church, before strolling through the narrow streets towards the City Market. Marvel at the fresh products and fruits and watch how locals buy and sell anything here. Observe the hustle and bustle of the fish auction.

After this, take a sightseeing tour of the main buildings in Stone Town including the Palace Museum and the House of Wonder, which is the largest and tallest building in the town, also known as Bait-al-ajab. Continue on to see the Old Fort, Tippu Tip, and of course, the most famous, Freddie Mercury’s House.
Also visit the Peace Memorial and Natural History Museum, amongst other attractions.
Next, learn about one of the main industries in the region: spices. Discover how the 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).

What people say about us
I did the tour with 3 friends. It was a total of 10 days. It was indescribable. Our guide is a great guy, you can tell that he has been doing this job for years. He was able to show us all the animals. Lions, rhinos, hippos, giraffes, even the rare cheetahs and leopards. If you have never been on safari, you should not miss this experience. We felt very comfortable the whole time. The lodges including service, equipment and service were also first class. Hence 5 stars.
