On your second day in Zanzibar, you will go on a guided tour of Stone Town. This area of the city is now a World Heritage site designated by UNESCO because of its unique architecture and history. Stone Town is known for its narrow passageways and ancient coral stone buildings, and it was once a center for trade in slaves, ivory, and gold. Today, these alleyways are home to craft centers and markets. As you walk through Stone Town, you will also see the famous carved wooden doors that are a historical treasure and tell the story of the city’s past.
The next day, you will go on a tour of the spices and fruits of Zanzibar. The island is known for its production of spices like cloves, nutmegs, black pepper, and cinnamon, and these spices are used in food, traditional medicines, and even in cosmetics. You will visit spice farms and see the various fruits and vegetables grown on the island, including papayas, mangoes, pineapples, and bananas. You will also have the chance to try the “king of fruits,” the Durian, which is known for its unique taste and thorny exterior.
