Chemka Hot Springs – 1 Day Tour

Imagine walking through lush green trees to a clearing which opens up before your eyes to reveal crystal blue waters that glimmer in the sunlight. Imagine jumping into your very own heated blue lagoon surrounded only by natural beauty. Imagine jumping on a rope and swinging into the water with childlike abandonment. Imagine laying in rippling warm water listening to the sounds of the wildlife in the distance.

You don’t have to imagine any of this because you can experience all of it and more at the Chemka Hot Springs in the village of Chemka at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Relax in the geothermal waters at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro and enjoy the rich minerals gently washing away the stresses and strains of modern life. The thermal waters actually originate from deep underground Mount Kilimanjaro.

The spring is actually rather big and over 6 meters deep in some places although you can see the bottom through the crystal clear waters no matter where you are. You can also wrap your arms around one of the roots and just let the water flow by as you drift off into a daydream listening to the monkeys and birds in the treas.

You can have as much fun or relaxation as your heart desires and your mind and body needs.
