WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT
The natural hot springs provide you with an incredible day trip experience. You'll enjoy a medium-paced ride with your experienced guide as you reach the rural hot springs overseen by the Maasai community. With lunch and drinks included, you can stay as long as you want and come back to base when you're ready.
We’ll pick you up from your hotel Moshi or Arusha in the morning for the long ride to the Chemka Hot Springs. The road is bumpy and windy, so hang on! During the ride, don’t forget to enjoy the wonderful scenery and authentic Tanzanian life as it unfolds along the road.
When we arrive, you’re free to be you. Linger at the edge of the springs, taking in the blue, blue waters and the lush green of the surrounding forest. Take a leisurely swim (don’t forget that the water is not truly warm, so you won’t feel like an Olympic sprint) or float in a world that’s all your own, listening to the water lapping and the birds overhead but rather refreshing since the water source is from the Kilimanjaro mountain itself.. If you’re feeling adventurous, why not play on the rope swing? Playing isn’t just for kids!
The pond can be very deep, in some places up to 8 meters, but the water is so clear that you can see right to the bottom. Eat your lunch in the shade of the trees or, find a hot spot all your own. You’ve plenty of time to spot the wildlife that also enjoy the Chemka Hot Springs.
