Spice TOur on bikE
Easy biking- 9.00-16.00
The advantage with discovering the Spice Farm area on bike is that you will see so much more of this stunningly lush region. And no worries- this biking is for most people, not much effort needed.
We meet up at Stone Town Café to get our bikes and then we start our tour through the mysterious street of this UNESCO World Heritage town. We bike as a Zanzibari on the road a few km before we reach the lush and green farming area. On the way we stop and try local specialties and fruit and we pass a school and a mosque to gain insight to the village life on Zanzibar.
Spice tour and lunch at the farm
On the Zanzibar Spice Tour we will find tropical fruits, spices and rare species of plants. Depending on the season we will see and taste vanilla, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, turmeric, lemon grass, cloves, ylang ylang, cumin, garlic, ginger, coriander, pepper, tamarind, chili, oregano and many others. Learn about the properties and origins of each spice, and their use as medicines or in food and drink. Be sure to smell and taste everything on offer! Before biking back we enjoy lunch on the farm made from vegetables and fruit in season.
Meet the rare Red Colobus Monkey
We take another route back passing a forest inhabited by Red Colobus Monkeys, Blue Sykes Monkeys and lots of birds. The Red Colobus Monkey is one of Africa´s rarest primates rare and only found in Zanzibar. The population on the island is 3500 and one group is living in this forest.
