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 daytrip, and those warm blue waters invite you to linger, swim or explore. Return refreshed, revitalised and relaxed.
And if you really don’t want to leave just yet, we can organise and afternoon barbie or even an overnight stay.

When you reach Kikuletwa hot springs it will appear as an oasis surrounded by sprawling fig trees, in the middle of this semi-arid land scape.
