Kikuletwa Hotsprings (Day-Trip)

Edit Content

The Kikuletwa Hotsprings (also named Chemka) are one of the most beautiful and refreshing places in Tanzania. Here you can swim in crystal clear, turquoise, warm water. It’s a small oasis in the middle of absolutely nowhere, literally! Simply an amazing experience that’s worth the visit when you’re in Tanzania. From Arusha, the trip will take about 2 hours.

The drive from Arusha to Kikuletwa Hotsprings will start on the main road towards Moshi or Arusha (depending on your location). After driving on the main road and hopefully catching a glimpse of Mount Kilimanjaro, we’ll leave the main road and exchange it for an adventurous off-road path, straight into no man’s land. The road will take you through the gorgeous African countryside, past bushland, dry riverbeds, baobab, and acacia trees. This vast area is home to members of many different tribes, which we will pass by on our way over to the Kikuletwa Hotsprings.

Once arrive at the hot springs, you can swim, rope swing, explore, relax and enjoy the beautiful green oasis. You can rent snorkelling goggles to overview the underwater world and search for hiding turtles. If you’d like to relax, put out your towel, order a coconut or even have a very local massage.

The Kikuletwa Hotsprings is home to one very specific type of fish, named the Garra Rufa fish. If that doesn’t ring a bell, it’s those fish they use for pedicures that eat the dead skin off of your feet! The Rungudai Hot Springs is their natural habitat, so don’t be scared if you feel something nibbling on your feet. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the free pedicure. Outside of the hot springs, people pay a lot of money for this treatment, but here it’s completely free! There’s also a chance to find turtles and catfish in the hot springs
