Description

Delve into Zanzibar's flavorful heritage as you discover the spice plantations that pepper Tanzania's largest “Spice Island.” See, smell, touch, and taste your way around farms producing everything from cardamom to ginger, and learn about the island's centuries-old connection to spices.

Meet your guide at your hotel and set out into the Zanzibar countryside. As you pass through small villages, stop to visit a series of spice plantations, where locals invite you to stroll through the fields and watch the harvesting process in action. Watch workers scale trees to pick tropical fruits, examine the barks of medicinal plants, and inhale the pungent aromas of the island's wealth of spices, which include cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cardamom, cloves, pepper, and vanilla. Indulge your taste buds with the delicious products of the plantation, from zesty ginger and pepper tea to ice-cold coconut juice and ripe, juicy mangoes.

Along the way, learn about the origins of Zanzibar's spice trade, which dates back to the 16th century, and discover how spices have become an essential ingredient in everyday life on the island. If you like, purchase fresh spices to take home with you before your guide escorts you back to your hotel.
