Where You’ll Go
A short distance from the major hub on Zanzibar, you can take this day tour from Stone Town which explores the plantations on the worlds most famous spice island. This day tour in Zanzibar is taken on foot and lasts for just a few hours but it is very much an insight into the local culture and make up of their surrounding nature.
Having arrived and been welcomed by your tour guide, you will proceed on foot through the plantations on which the local guide for your spice tour from Stone Town will explain the many plants while demonstrating how they extract the eucalyptus, ginger etc from each.
What You’ll See
Expect a collage of colour and an assault on the senses as you walk around the luscious make-up in this region. Yes, a day tour to the spice plantations will show you how the locals extract the produce and use it in their everyday lives. Not only will you uncover the source for these exotic scents but you will also have the opportunity to taste them before watching how a local climbs one of the many coconut trees for the reward of some fresh milk.
You will also be provided with a light lunch on this trip consisting of fresh fruits.
When You’ll Go
Ideally, if part of a group you can take in a spice tour en-route to (or from) the North beaches but regardless – the spice tour from Stone Town will depart early morning and return just after lunch.
