Zanzibar Spice Farm Tour

Zanzibar Spice Farm Tour

Zanzibar is home to a variety of unique attractions that you won’t find anywhere else. One of the most fascinating tours we offer is the Zanzibar Spice Tour. Have you ever visited a spice plantation before? If not, you’re in for a treat. This half-day tour is a popular choice among tourists, as they can easily combine it with another half-day tour to make the most of their day. We have other half-day tours available as well, such as the Prison Island Tour, the Stone Town Tour, and the Jozani Forest Tour.

During the Spice Plantation Tour, you’ll get to explore the different spices and fruits that grow in Zanzibar. You’ll have the opportunity to taste tropical fruits and learn about the unique herbs, spices, and rare species of plants that grow here. Zanzibar is known as the Spice Island, and this tour sheds light on the interesting history of the island in this field. Over the centuries, various spices were taken from Zanzibar to the Sultan of Oman across the Indian Ocean. Spices have always been an important part of Zanzibar’s history and are still significant to this day. Cloves, nutmeg, pepper, and cinnamon are just some of the spices that Zanzibar is famous for.

Since this is a guided tour, you can expect a detailed and interesting explanation from the guide about the spices and plants you encounter. You’ll learn about their various uses, how they’re grown, and so on. Some are even used as remedies, such as the leaves of the neem tree, which are helpful against indigestion and malaria, or the red sap from the iodine tree, which helps fight infections. Others are used for cosmetic purposes, such as the foaming berries, which have been used for centuries as an alternative to soap, and the cloves from the henna tree, which are used to produce dye for the hands and feet. Other popular spices you’ll see include tamarind, vanilla, ginger, and menthol.


During the tour, you may also have the opportunity to get a quick-drying Indian ink body art made, instead of henna, which takes longer to dry. You’ll witness various unique scenes that can only be experienced in a spice plantation, such as a coconut climber at work.

The Zanzibar Spice Tour is an original tour that many tourists look forward to. The tour usually starts at about 9 am but can be arranged anytime up to 4 pm.
