Stone Town and the Spice Plantations

Zanzibar has a fascinating history as it was the centre of the slave and spice trades in the 1800s and UNESCO-listed Stone Town, with its labyrinth of narrow streets, ancient buildings and bustling bazaars, is at its cultural heart. Known as The Spice Island, no visit to Zanzibar would be complete without a visit to the spice plantations, a true delight for your senses.

ZANZIBAR DREAMING

The azure waters and soft white sands of Zanzibar offer an idyllic end to an action packed safari or a relaxing interlude during one of our longer overland adventures.

No visit to Zanzibar would be complete without a visit to the spice plantations. Delight your senses on a guided tour and learn about the assortment of spices, such as cloves, cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg, and their various uses. It was the spice plantations that brought the beginnings of Zanzibar’s infamous slave trade dating back to the 1840s, which you can learn all about on a tour of historic Stone Town.
