You could also shop for colorful textiles like kitenges and kikoys and much like the Omani princesses of yore, you could stop by at a "duka" and check out its collection of delicately crafted jewelry embedded with Tanzanite stones.

Look for lemon grass, pepper, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and many more. Sample the many spices and try discerning them from the seasoning products you find in your grocery stores from back home. The next leg of your excursion of discovery will take to the Jozani Forest, home to the Kirk's red colobus monkey and also Sykes’.
