The House

The House of Spices is a typical 18 th Century Zanzibar House and it rises up over three floors enclosing a central courtyard.

The House of Spices was one of the most notable houses of Zanzibar Stone Town, belonging to an old family of Spice Traders. Spices from the Islands of Pemba and Zanzibar were collected here, spreading their fragrant aroma over the house and the surrounding narrows streets of Stone Town.

The house has been kept in good order and any restorations have followed the original plans over the many years of its history. Even though over 200 years have been passed since it was built, The House of Spices carries fully intact, the romance and atmosphere of an old Arab House.
