What To Expect
Start your day by exploring Stone Town. Follow your guide and learn about the events that shaped Zanzibar as you see the places relevant to its history such as the former Slave Market and the Anglican Cathedral. See the House of Wonders, the Sultans' Palace Museum, the Old Arab Fort and Dispensary.
During the first part of the tour, we will explore the markets and see the children play in the streets of the residential areas as their mothers sit outside and the men play board games. There will be an optional stop at The Zanzibar Coffee House to provide rest from the heat.
Later, we will visit a spice farm. Touch, smell and taste different spices and tropical fruits. Try to guess which is which, from the crushed leaves, the fruits, shoots and vines and creepers crawling up the trees. Learn about their properties, their origins and their use as medicine and in food and drink. Get an insight into local life and the opportunity to try some Swahili dishes, taste the fruits in season and try some spiced tea. An optional lunch is available at the Hakuna Matata Beach Lodge, offering a special menu prepared with the best of the seasonal fruit and spices introduced to you during the tour.
