"The most important thing is to enjoy your trip"

A little oasis just a short drive off the main road between Moshi and Arusha, the Kikuletwa hot springs are the perfect place to relax and one of the best things to do while in Moshi area. And as it’s not only the destination that counts, the journey up to the hot springs is one to remember as well. Several roads lead here and we’ll pick the best one according to the time of the year. You’ll drive through sunflower fields in May and June and through a sea of red flowers and sugar cane at the end of the year. And on clear days, you’re in for some beautiful views of Mount Kilimanjaro, no matter what month it is.


We’ll pick you up from your accommodation in Moshi around 10 in the morning and drive for about 2 hours before we reach the Kikuletwa hot spring, also called Maji Moto hot springs or Chemka hot springs. We’ll drive you back around 4 in the afternoon, and everything you do in between is completely up to you.
Take a dip in the refreshing water (Surpriiiise! The water’s not hot as you might have expected, as it comes directly from Kilimanjaro), walk around the surrounding area, eat some chips mayai or chips kuku (an omelet with chips inside or chicken and chips) as you enjoy the shadow of the beautiful palm and fig trees.
The drive from and back to Moshi is beautiful in itself, as we already mentioned above. Part of it leads over a paved road, but the rest of the time you’ll be driving over dirt roads through the country side. Dry riverbeds, baobab and acacia trees, tiny villages, Maasai with their cattle, and old broken railways determine the scenery.
