1 Day Arusha to Chemka Hot Springs
The distance from Arusha to the hot springs is 69 Km.
We will pick you up from your hotel in Arusha/Moshi early morning for an hour-long drive to the Chemka Hot Springs. The road is very bumpy and windy, so hang on! During the drive, don’t forget to enjoy the wonderful scenery and authentic Tanzanian life as it unfolds along the road.
Chemka Hot Springs, an oasis of geothermal warmth that bubbles up from underground. Surrounded by lush forest alive with birdsong and the call of monkeys, the Chemka Hot Springs is an ideal place to ease those tired legs after a strenuous ascent up Kilimanjaro. They’re a little bit of heaven that’s perfect for a day trip, and those warm blue waters invite you to linger, swim or explore. Return refreshed, revitalized and relaxed.
When we arrive, you’re free to be you. Linger at the edge of the springs, taking in the blue waters and the lush green of the surrounding forest. Take a leisurely swim (don’t forget that the waters are very 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. 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 10 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, if you’re a sun bunny, find a hot spot all your own. You’ve plenty of time to spot the wildlife that also enjoys the Chemka Hot Springs.
And if you really don’t want to leave just yet, we can organize an afternoon barbie or even an overnight stay.
