Maji Moto, known locally as Kikuletwa Hotsprings, is a paradisiac oasis amidst the Tanzanian savannah. It offers captivating beautiful-styled views, crystal-clear water and dense vegetation abound.
Chemka Hot Springs is the best place to visit after a Kilimanjaro hike or a safari adventure. Chemka oasis is a unique phenomenon – it is the only place in Tanzania (and most likely in the whole of East Africa), where the groundwater actively interacts with geothermal sources, forming a number of small lakes with warm, never-stagnating water and which the purity is not inferior to the best Dominican or Maldivian resorts.
We’ll pick you up from your Lindrin Lodge, Moshi hotel early morning for the 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.
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.
