Our spice plantation tour in Zanzibar will definitely be a memorable one. During the tour you will get to discover the interesting and assorted range of spices and fruits that grow here. You will also be given the opportunity to taste several delicious tropical fruits. Being able to learn and see the various herbs, spices and rare species of plants that grow in Zanzibar is quite intriguing as you will never have heard or seen them before, let alone tasted them.
Since this is a guided tour you can expect a detailed and interesting explanation from the guide about these spices and plants, including what they are used for, how they are grown and so on. Some are even used as remedies, such as the leaves of the neem tree which were found to be very helpful against indigestion and malaria, or the red sap from the iodine tree that helps to fight against infections. Others were used for cosmetic purposes, such as the foaming berries that were used for centuries as an alternative to soap and the cloves from the henna tree that are used to produce dye for the hands and feet. Other popular spices include tamarind, vanilla, ginger, and menthol, to mention just a few.
During this tour you may also have the opportunity of getting a piece of body art made on you. This is carried out by using quick drying Indian ink, instead of henna, which takes longer to dry. You could also see a coconut climber at work, among various other unique scenes that can only be experienced in a spice plantation.
