Exotic Spice Day Tour Of Zanzibar
A tour of the world renowned Zanzibar spice plantations with a primary objective to give you a complete picture as to why Zanzibar is known as "The Spice Island"
Our three hour tour starts with a drive through a profusion of greenery in the countryside seeing, smelling and tasting a variety of spices and mouth-watering tropical seasonal fruits such as jack fruit, pineapple, banana, green coconut juice, dourian, love apple, litche, soursop etc. Spices such as cloves, cardamon, cinnamon, black pepper, turmeric, vanilla, 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 sultan of Oman first introduced these kinds of plantations on the island in 1873. You will be overwhelmed by the abundance of botanical species growing in these gardens - exotic spices, fruits and vegetables.
