zanzibar traditional cooking class & Spice farms

Zanzibar is also called the “Spice Island”, besides the beautiful beaches and parks, it offers a unique tour of various types of aromatic spices, also known as “The Spice Tour”. Even though these Zanzibar spices like Cloves, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Cardamon are commonly used and we all know their taste, hardly anyone would be able to identify them in wild nature. This tour is a unique highlight and absolute must if you want to learn more about the origin of the spices and the traditional food of Zanzibar.

We start our half day trip at 09:30 in the morning and drive together to one of our carefully selected spice farms located in Kizimbani,15 kilometers northeast of Stonetown. You will get a guided Tour through the Spice Farm including the amazing smell and taste of the several spices and fruits. You will also harvest the most important ingredients that you need for our traditional cooking class of the local cuisine. After the Spice tour, a local woman will show and teach you how to prepare and cook the traditional food and you will enjoy your homemade meal together. At ca. 2 o’clock we make our way back to Stonetown or the Hotel.
