Tangawizi Spice Farm - Review

A trip to the Spice Island of the World is incomplete without learning about the most valuable produce on the archipelago. Tangawizi Spice Farm offers guided tours to one of the spice farms in the interior of Zanzibar. Here you can learn about the cultivation of spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, black pepper etc. There are several tropical fruits like jackfruits, tangerines, mango etc. grown alongside. You can also spot coffee plantations on this farm. The farm hosts a spice meal for visitors. This meal is had in the local style sitting cross legged under the plantation shade. You will be offered spice tea along with the meal. If you wish to be more artistic, you can get your hands painted with exquisite designs made from henna. You can either get the designs drawn from the locals or create your own design on your hands and feet.

Tangawizi Spice Farm, Zanzibar Reviews

  • Opportunity to get to know most of the spices and exotic tastes available on earth with ease. Got the chance to tase cinnamon and kinds directly cut from its trees. You can also shop a wide variety of spices and aromas specially prepared and bottled up, might be the freshest you'll ever get.

  • This was one of the highlights of our visit to Zanzibar. The guides are very informative and friendly. A fruit tasting at the end if the tour was delicious.

  • A lot of different spices on display, friendly and knowlegeable staff, good prices and best spicrs

  • You must do the tours with a local who know the agriculture, I recommend Hatib from stone town ask the concierge peace at Zanzibar hotel . It’s very interesting organic farm

  • Best spice farm tour in Zanzibar! Ask for Ibrahim to be your tour guide, he is fanatastic! If you do the Tangawizi Bistro cooking class with Shara (highly recommended!) she can request Ibrahim for you. I did this tour in conjunction with Shara’s Tangawizi Bistro cooking class. Shara (the cook) met me at the market in Stonetown to create the menu and shop for the food and while she set up I did this spice tour. One of the highlights of my trip! All the people here are artisans from the handmade flower baskets to collect your spices and herbs in to the sellers of the soaps and oils and spices straight from the village. Ibrahim is so knowledgeable, funny, excellent English and an overall great tour guide. I loved the end where a guy climbed a coconut tree singing a traditional song and brought down coconuts for us to eat and drink. Bring cash to tip them, they deserve it and it’s all so worth it! Also cash to buy spices, perfumed oils and handmade lotions and other great items. Much of my souvineers came from here and everyone loved the authentic gift I brought back. I did 3 spice farm tours and this one blew me away and it was all because my amazing guide, the talented artesians you meet along the way and Shara’s cooking class where I got to cook with my collected herbs 🌿 💖😊 it’s an amazing experience and one not to miss!
