Making a new tour – Spice Tour on bike

All visitors on Zanzibar loves the Spice Tour as they see, smell and taste the spices and fruit only seen in cans at home.

For long we have thought biking in the Spice Farm area must be the ultimate way of discovering the spices and Zanzibar. Getting not only the tour but the whole lush, green and beautiful area full of colors and smell. So deal- Suleiman and Helen went.

To take the Spice Tour on bike and avoid the hectic traffic, we put our bikes on the roof a local bus to Kianga. After 20 min we off loaded and went to Abeid Spice farm, the pioneers in Spice Tours on Zanzibar and still the best and most authentic. The farm is run by the whole family. 

They grow the fruit, spices and the vegetables that is part of the tasting and the lunch. Stunning area with coconut and orange plantations.   Even though we live here and are spoiled with beauty we both enjoyed the tour. The lunch, made by the women in the family, was my best home cooked experience.

But the best was yet to come- at least for me. The tour down to Stone Town was downhill through a rainforest like area with monkeys. Only us and the monkeys. Quiet. Peaceful.

So now, welcome to do a Spice Tour on bike. It is a true pleasure and not to much bike effort needed so it works for families too.

If you want to discover the whole of Zanzibar on cycle, take a look at or 7 days bike holiday.
