The Spice Tour is one of the most popular excursions in Zanzibar, the Spice Island. Zanzibar was one of the world’s leading producers of spices such as clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. Tour takes you to on organic farm with wide variety of plants around the year. You don’t just see, you also touch, smell and taste. Spices for all senses
Spices and herbs were originally introduced to Zanzibar by Portuguese traders in the 16th century, brought from their colonies in South America and India.
This tour is a walking tour in a spice farm (shamba). While there, you shall see how the spices, herbs and fruits grow and are cultivated. Your tour guide will describe how the crops can be used.
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, cassava and oranges. After the tour you will enjoy a traditional swahili lunch at the farm. Here is when you can really taste the different ways of using spices.
The tour finishes with a stop at a spice stall selling fresh packaged spices (cash only).
A Walking Tour to the History and Present of Stone Town
This atmospheric and mystical town is the cultural and historical heart of Zanzibar. It was constructed from coral stone during the 19th and 20th century. It was declared a World Heritage Site in 2000.
Stone Town is a very lively place where you’ll find a mixture of Arabic, African, Indian and European cultures living comfortably together. As you walk through the labyrinth of streets too narrow for cars to pass, you can see mosques, churches and temples side to side.
While you wonder around the city, your guide will take you on a historical and cultural journey through the old slave market, Darajani market place, the House of Wonders, the Old Fort and the Sultan’s Palace. Tour also includes a lunch in a restaurant or in a local house, if agreed beforehand.
While the tour is only half a day, we recommend you to stay in Stone Town for at least two days to discover many more magnificent wonders. Forodhani Gardens is definitely worth a visit, especially at night when it comes alive as one of the best street food markets in East Africa.
Uroa is a quite and little fishing village on the east cost of Zanzibar.
Local people live traditionally fishing (there's also a fish market on the beach; its very folkloristic to see the fish auction!) and seaweed harvesting (usually used for cosmetics).
This coast is affected by the tides phenomenon (not to be missed!) and do enjoy the beautiful sunsets that this island gives (strictly in the north-west of the isle); anyhow the wide, white and sandy beach is one of the most beautiful of the isle. Guests can have nice promenades during the low tide or do jogging too.
The Resort offers its guests a private beach with typical sunshades and sunbeds, just next to the Bar Pwani to relax in the sunshine with something cold to drink.
All 135 rooms have a private balcony with Sea or Garden View. All Rooms are equipped with individual Air Conditioning, fan, telephone, Min fridge, Television, safe box and coffee facilities.
