All about the SPICE TOUR.

Spices from Zanzibar are famous around the world and holiday to Zanzibar would be incomplete without a visit to the spice plantations. Tour guides will take you on a walking tour of the spice farms at Kizimbani or Kidichi; picking bunches of leaves, fruits and twigs from bushed and inviting you to smell or taste them to guess what they are.

Visit the Kizimbani Village – The tour starts from 8:30am and it takes 2 to 3 hours depending on the activities to be done. You will be overwhelmed by the abundance of botanical species growing in these gardens – exotic species, fruits and vegetables. Many of the species have medicinal properties and are still used by the local population to cure certain maladies. Taste a variety of fruits ranging from rose apple to the guava. Some rare plants like henna, perfume tree and lipstick tree are used for their value in preparing cosmetics. Pretty much all the ingredients of the average kitchen spice rack are represented – Cinnamon, cardamom, coriander, turmeric, garlic, ginger, chillies, black pepper, nutmeg, cloves, vanilla, lemon grass,  to mention just a few. This Tour can be combined with village tour or let’s go cooking tour.
