Spices from Zanzibar are famous around the world, and a holiday to Zanzibar would be incomplete without a visit to the spice plantations. The sultan of Oman first introduced these types of plantations to the island in 1873. You will be overwhelmed by the abundance of botanical species growing within these gardens – exotic spices, fruits and vegetables. Many of the spices have medicinal properties and are still used by the local population to cure certain maladies. Savour a variety of spices including cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, vanilla, and black pepper.

Taste an array of fruits ranging from the rose apple to the guava. Rare plants such as henna, the ‘perfume tree’ and ‘lipstick tree’ are used for their valuable properties in preparing cosmetics. Besides the visit to two distinct spice farms, the Kidichi Persian Baths, richly decorated in stuccowork, are also included in the trip.
