A Zanzibar trip without spice tour is no trip, in fact the island is often called ‘Spice Island’. And you may want to think again before wishing someone away to the other side of the world – to ‘where the pepper grows’, as the Danes sometimes say – because this would land them on Zanzibar. This is where black pepper actually grows as fresh, green berries, along with nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, ginger, lemongrass and exotic fruits.
On this excursion, you will visit both small kitchen gardens and large spice plantations around the villages of Kizimbani and Kinchi. You can smell, touch and taste a wide variety of spices and fruits. You will also learn more about how they are grown, and how they can be used to make food, as medicine and also perfume!
