The history of Zanzibar's Spice Plantations extends back several hundred years and the island is famous for its exports of nutmeg, vanilla, cloves and cardamom to name a few. We will pick you up in the morning at your hotel where you will meet your guide who will accompany you to one of the local spice plantations. Here you will get a chance to see firsthand how these spices are grown, learn about their traditional uses and see how they are best used in local drink and food. A walk through the spice farms will demonstrate how local workers tend the crops, how cultivation is managed and on how in the past slave labor was employed. On return from the spice farm tour we will stop at a local market where you will have a chance to see the finished product for sale.
