Stone Town is the cultural heart of the island and the old town of the city of Zanzibar, located on the west coast. The city must be the name of the many multi-storey buildings made of stone that form the landscape of the old part of the city. These buildings are not made of stone, but of mortar and coral. Although corals were a good and easily accessible building material, they are also easily damaged. Some of the houses are in poor condition and the Stone Village Conservation Authority coordinates the restorations of these houses to maintain the original glory of the city.
Zanzibar has an international reputation as the island of spices. With this guided tour, you will discover various spices from Zanzibar visiting some of the most important spice production sites. On this tour we will be in contact with several features of Zanzibar that are used in almost all kitchens, such as cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, garlic, coconut, lemon grass, turmeric, ginger, vanilla and nutmeg.
On the other hand, the island of the prison is one of the most interesting on the coast, once an Arab has been made for rebellious slaves. General Mathews later turns it into a prison, although it has never been used as such. It is in a boat to move to the island, in 25 minutes you reach the port. During this visit the large territory of the turtles that inhabit the island, which were imported from the Seychelles to Zanzibar. We also visit the prison where the slaves were locked.
