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.

All in all I liked the spice tour and our guide was nice to us. But it did not meet my expactations of a big spicy farm. We literally were taking a small walk around and smelled on some species. The fun part was when one local was climbing a coconut tree.
Great place...very informed guide with excellent tree, plants and spice knowledge. Made me realize how much I need to appreciate nature and what it offers. The highlight was singing dude high on the coconut tree...that was funny! No harness and I was hoping nothing would happen. The ease he climbed the tall tree was interesting. Prices for the commodities are a bit high though.
it's a demonstration farm, not the real thing, but then u get to see more plants. the organization of the place is somewhat amateur and the man climbing a palm tree, singing and awaiting tips utterly unnecessary
Had a very nice spice tour last Wednesday. The guides are so knowledgeable and Friendly. Tested the Dorian fruit for the first time.
More interesting than anticipated. Worth a visit!
