Chemka Hot Spring is a little oasis on the way between Moshi and Arusha, Chemka Hot Springs is one of the best things to do in Arusha and Moshi.
The journey up to the hot springs is just as memorable as the destination itself.
There are several ways to get here, and we will choose the best one according to the time of year.
During the spring and summer months, you’ll drive through sunflower fields, while at the end of the year you’ll drive through a sea of red flowers and sugar cane at the TPC sugar plantation in Moshi, Tanzania.
On clear days, you can see Mount Kilimanjaro, no matter what the month is.


The tour begins after breakfast from your Moshi accommodation.
After one and a half hours of driving, we arrive at Kikuletwa hot Springs, also known as Maji Moto hot springs or Chemka hot springs.
You can do whatever you want between now and 4 in the afternoon, as long as you get back by then.
Embrace the refreshing water (It’s not as hot as you might have expected, because it’s coming straight from Kilimanjaro).
Observe local boys jumping from ropes into the water, showing off some impressive
moves, or eating some chips Mayai or chips Kuku (an omelet with chips or chicken with chips) while enjoying the shade of the palms and fig trees.
As we already mentioned, the trip to and from Moshi is gorgeous.
There are parts of the route that run over paved roads, but the rest is on dirt roads through the countryside.
Dry riverbeds, acacia and baobab trees, tiny villages, and Maasai with their cattle make up the scenery.
