You may not be aware that Zanzibar is also known as the Spice Island, which is why this tour makes so much sense. It gives insight into Zanzibar’s fascinating history on this subject. Various spices were transported over the Indian Ocean from Zanzibar to the Sultan of Oman over the years. Dhows used to do this by attempting to take advantage of seasonal trade winds. So spices have played a major role in Zanzibar’s history and continue to do so today. Zanzibar is highly recognized for its spices, such as cloves, nutmeg, pepper, and cinnamon.
Because this is a guided tour, you can anticipate that the guide will provide a full and informative explanation of various spices and plants, including what they are used for, how they are grown, and so on. Some are even used as treatments, such as the neem tree’s leaves, which have been shown to be highly beneficial against dyspepsia and malaria, or the red sap from the iodine tree, which aids in the fight against diseases. Others were employed for cosmetic purposes, such as the foamy berries that have been used for generations as an alternative to soap and the henna tree cloves, which are used to generate dye for the hands and feet. To name a few, popular spices include tamarind, vanilla, ginger, and menthol.
During this tour, you may also have the opportunity to have body art created for you. This is accomplished by utilizing quick-drying Indian ink rather than henna, which takes longer to dry. You might also see a coconut climber at work, among other unusual sights only found on a spice farm.
