Spice Tour, Prison Island and 178 Years Old Giant Turtle!


Spice Tour is a walking tour at a spice farm where you can learn about different spices how they are farmed and used, taste exotic fruits and can buy fresh spices, coffee, tea, soaps etc.

Spices and herbs were originally introduced to Zanzibar by Portuguese traders in the 16th century, brought from their colonies in South America and India. After, Arabs started large spice plantations making Zanzibar the world’s biggest exporter.During this four hour guided walk through Kizimbani spice plantation you will be smelling and tasting spices, herbs and tropical fruits such as clove, lemongrass, nutmeg, cinnamon, turmeric, vanilla, coconuts, papaya, chili, black pepper, jackfruit, cardamom. Everything you will see on tour you will have a chance to taste or smell.

I can recommend my guide Zekariya for the tour, he is friendly, experienced, with good English and he also organises other tours within the island. Tel: 00255 777 081439.

PRISON ISLAND and GIANT TURTLES

You can spend one afternoon walking through the narrow streets of Stone Town, visit the house of Freddie Mercury (yes he live for some time in Zanzibar) and take one of the boats located near to the Restaurant to Prison Island (inbetween, the restaurant floating is a tourist trap, avoid eating anything there).

Giant Turtles were imported from Seychelles in the late 19th century. Once on the island, you have the opportunity to feed the turtles.

Mating Turtles (really laud!! :))
