Spice Tour: The Island of Spice of Zanzibar

Zanzibar Excursion

Spice Tour
Zanzibar is also known as "The Island of Spices", whose name evokes a romantic past embalmed in the aroma of cloves, cinnamon, cardamom and lemon grass.

This tour starts with a drive through a profusion of greenery in the countryside seeing, smelling and tasting a variety of mouth-watering tropical seasonal fruits, some examples are: jack fruit, pineapple, banana, green coconut (dafu), durian, love apple (tufaa), litchi (shoki-shoki), sour sop (mabungo) and star fruit (karambola).

Spices are cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper, turmeric and nutmeg - are as exotic as the flavour. A full tour involves much more than spices and you will also have a chance to see the iodine plant, heena bush, ylang-ylang, the lipstick tree, cocoa and coffee trees.

The tour also includes a visitor to:-
Kidichi Persian Baths:

Maruhubi Palace Ruins:
