Visit Tanzania 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.

Situated about 35 km from Moshi, in the heart of the Sanya Plains, lie the Rundugai Springs. Locally called Chemka, meaning boiling, referring to the way the water appears to boil as it emerges from underground.! The springs’ water is from the Greatest African Mountain, Kilimanjaro. It is an inviting place for a picnic and a swim too (don’t forget your swimwear). You can have as much fun and relaxation as your heart desires, and that your body and mind needs. The drive time from Arusha is about 2 hours and on site the villagers run several small shops with food & drinks.

Visit Tanzania Probably nobody would expect an oasis for refreshment and relaxation in the desert-like landscape between Arusha and Moshi. Several small bars and shops (run by the local villagers) offer Swahili dishes, grilled meat and cool drinks.

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. After having super holiday you plan for another destination to enjoy more and having some series of joyful moment.

Day 1

You’ll picked up from your hotel in Moshi and drive to 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.

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 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 enjoy the Chemka Hot Springs.
