This morning you will be met by your guide and taken on a guided tour of Stone Town and a Spice Tour. Zanzibar has a rich history but it truly became a centre of trade once it was settled by the Portugese, the first Europeans to settle here, during the age of exploration in the 16th and 17th Century. Zanzibar once held the title of being Africa's major hub of trade before the mainland became more settled and tamed. Zanzibar is also known as the 'Spice Island' due to this period when spice was its major trade followed closely by the slave trade and ivory. Zanzibar still today flourishes with the trade of spices, its most common exports being cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and pepper. Overnight Stone Town.
Enjoy all of today at your leisure further exploring stone town. Overnight Stone Town.
