There's also a pit stop at the Tanzanite Museum, where you'll explore the history of Tanzania's famous Tanzanite gemstone, a unique treasure found only in the country.Meanwhile, you'll learn about popular inhabitants such as Princess Salme, Farrokh Bulsara, and Bi Kidude. Last but not least, you'll pass by the Old Fort before finishing up with some craft and souvenir shopping. The afternoon will then be dedicated to finding out why Zanzibar is known as the Spice Island. Once you arrive at the farms, you'll set off to see where pepper, cloves, nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon are grown.
