How about this combination? We think it is a perfect choice for the best Zanzibar gourmet experience. We will take you to the biggest spice farm on the island where you will find out why is it nicknamed as Spice Island.

Our guide will take you through the farm and show you how are some worldwide famous and some unique spices grown, used and how they taste. Many spices such as cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, vanilla, lemongrass are used for cooking, medicine and cosmetics, and you might even have some at your house and don’t know in how many ways you can use it!

After finishing with the spice tour, right on the farm we will have a tropical fruit refreshment while getting ready to cook our own Zanzibar local lunch! Ladies from the village will teach you how to use some old school kitchen equipment, light the fire, prepare ingredients and make some Swahili food that are prepared everyday in local families – ugali, kachumbari, urojo soup, pilau rice, mandazi… yummy!
