Zanzibar Spice Tour
Duration 4 hour(s)
Anyone visiting Zanzibar simply must go on a spice tour, admittedly it’s a well trodden tourist trap, but the experience is well worth it. You’ll taxi out to an interior plantation (many of which are no longer commercially functioning) and a local guide will walk you amongst vanilla pod vines, fields of lemongrass, cumin seed pods and turmeric root. Smell, sample, savour – the experience is a sensual journey into the spices that flavor our food. Look out for my article on Swahili Spices in the upcoming May/June issue of Safari for more information.
