Chemka Kikuletwa Hot Spring (Maji Moto) Day Tour Overview

“Chemka” means boiling or bubbling. This beautiful mineral spring that originates from Kilimanjaro ground waters releases bubbles as it comes up into the natural pool surrounded by large fig trees. Here you can swim and snorkel in the transparent warm water (26 degrees), sunbathe or relax in hammocks in theshade.

Located approximately 2 hours drive from Moshi town and hidden by a beautiful green forest lie natural hot springs, ideal for taking a relaxing dip or simply to use as a backdrop for a tranquil picnic or BBQ. You will be accompanied by a driver and guide and can spend as little or as long as you like, with the option to camp overnight in this idyllic spot. If lucky, you may be able to spot baboons hanging in the tree-tops above you.

Chemka Kikuletwa Hot Spring (Maji Moto) Itinerary

Day Trip to Kikuletwa Chemka Hot Springs Cultural Tour
You’ll depart from your hotel in Moshi or Arusha and make the two-hour drive to Maji Chemka. This scenic drive takes you off the tourist trail and offers a glimpse into local life: bustling markets, local farms, and the like.
You’ll then spend a few hours soaking in the pleasantly warm waters, swinging on the rope swing, relaxing in the sun-dappled shade of the trees, and feasting on local favourites such as chips maiyai (a French fry omelette) and nyama choma (BBQ).
After your fun in the sun, you’ll return to your lodge or continue on to your next destination.
