Zanzibar and the coast, Tanzania
With the Spice Islands named as they are you cannot visit this particular part of the world and not delve into its history by taking a Spice Tour on the island.
Zanzibar's history would not be the same without the cloves, cinnamon, pepper, nutmeg and other spices which have given rise to its name. Its involvement with these incredible spices dates back to the 16th century when the islands became such a crucial stopping point on the trade routes for spices. Your tour can take you though villages and spice plantations allowing you to watch as spice farm workers climb trees seeking specific plants and letting you experience the whole process first hand.
