    Thanks to the cultivation of cloves, black pepper, turmeric,  nutmeg, cinnamon and lemongrass, Zanzibar is often referred to as the Spice Island. Plantations of these spices cover the entire archipelago, so you can choose to take a spice tour on any of the farms. Alternatively, enjoy a taste of meals using these aromatic ingredients at market stalls, street food vendors or restaurants.

    Traditional and Unique Sailing Experience During Holiday in Zanzibar

    In the past, a large slave market and a stopover for moving slaves from East Africa, Zanzibar have a few sore historical points. Prison Island is one of the best places to learn about the slave trade and its damaging effects on the continent and how it facilitated the poisonous ivory trade. which still echoes today.

    On the other hand, Zanzibar is a wonderful place that helped the West to enjoy the eastern spices. This resulted in a lot of interest in the region by the Portuguese, Arabic, Persian and British, as well as by the Indian and African navy. They brought with them, among other things, traditional ship making.

    Used for fishing, tourist activities and trade, local handmade sailing boats are called dhow. They are made of wood with beautiful simple sails. Their traditional craftsmanship stems from all the trading history of the place.
