We have spend about two weeks in Paje - at this time Abdi took care of us and helped us a lot with tours and was very flexible to suit our schedule. He is very professional, knows whole Island. Tours were adjusted to our personal plans and needs. No issues with communication - Abdi speaks English very well and always checking on us if all has been delivered as promised. Summarising - very professional and individual approach, all was as agreed and planned. We highly recommend Abdi as Your local guide and person to contact if You want to explore Zanzibar and it’s best. We had an amazing time - thx Abdi and all the best!
This is one of the most beautiful trips in Zanzibar! Iur guide Abdi was attentive and very professional. The spice farm is a must see foe anyone visiting this beautiful island. Its one thing ro cook using spices, its another when u see the origins, hear the stories, taste the food and just enjoy the bountiful spices and produce this island offers.
Thanks a lot Abdi foe making it a memorable trip🙏🏼🙏🏼
ABDI picked 12 of us up from our Hotel in Nungwi, and transported us to the JAMBO Spice Farm where we started the afternoon with a delicious LUNCH! They served many traditional dishes such as Rice with Coconut and Cardamom, Fried Fish, Green Banana Stew, a Tomato and Coconut sauce and a luvly Red onion relish. We dined well! Next, they let us taste some delectable local fruit, such as Watermelon, Red Bananas, and what I would describe as Pomelo (similar to a pink grapefruit, with a green skin). Then our guide walked us all over the Farm Picking, Plucking and Pointing out Flowers, Pods and Seeds of the many fragrant familiar and unfamiliar spices. Some of the highlights included Vanilla, Black and Red Pepper, Nutmeg, Huge Durian and Ginger Root. They made us the customary tropical leaf crowns and bracelets for the ladies. We even got to see ‘Mr. Butterfly’ climb to the top of a towering coconut palm. My only complaint would be the Spice Market, which had a lovely selection of Afro-Indian spices, but it was poorly lit, and wayyy overpriced compared to the larger pouches of spices we saw later in Stone Town.
WHAT A LOVELY EXCURSION!
