The Spice Tour will clarify why Zanzibar is called “spice island”: you will be taken to a plantation where you will see where spices grow, among them cloves, nutmeg, vanilla, Zanzibar’s cardamoms, cinnamon, curry, menthol, pepper, tamarind, and ginger, but also tropical fruits such as papayas, mangoes, and jackfruit.  
You will also learn the origins of spice plants and herbs, as well as some uses they are put to. For example, the neem tree leaves were used locally as a traditional cure for malaria and indigestion, while the iodine tree is still used to fight infections in wounds. The tour ends with a visit to the spice shop on the farm, where you can buy fresh spices.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.

Good to ideal period to travel, and many people choose to visit at this time.
Chance for unpredictable weather but with fewer visitors.
