Went here after our trip up Kilimanjaro, what an amazing place. A place where I will never ever forget, laid back on a palm tree enjoying a nice cold Tusker next to the spring! I would recommend this place to anyone I know! This is a must visit if you’re in the area!

I visited Chemka Hot Springs just before leaving the area and catching my flight to Dar es Salaam. While I didn't think the water was hot, it was warm. It was crystal clear with some small fish that nipple on the dead skin of your feet or legs. If you can't swim, not a problem as the staff will provide inner tubes for a small fee. The swing is pretty cool, but if you're really adventurous you can climb the tree and jump from a higher distance. You can find food and drinks as well as a changing room/bathroom. They are not what you may be used to, but they work. Just make sure you close the door. If you move to the open area with more sunlight, the water is much warmer, but it is a great location and it wasn't crowded. I also went through the week (a Tuesday).

This is an excellent life joint to visit. The water isn't hot at all, it's so clear and has some current to it. It's just a little oasis with little fish that enjoy eating dead skin off your feet, and very clear water with a cave system that leads to Kilimanjaro. To get there, you definitely need an SUV. The road is very bad and sometimes flooded. There is also an entrance fee, so make sure to have enough cash with you. You don't really need a tour guide to get you there. I was able to drive on my own using downloaded offline Google Maps. It's very accurate. Depending on traffic, It's about 1hr and 30 min from Arusha. Drive passed KIA (Kilimanjaro International Airport) to a small town called Boma la Ngombe, make a right and you will drive for several Kilometers to this little beautiful place.

This is a must do in Tanzania. My brother could not swim in mafia but he swam here and now I do not feel nearly as bad for him. We arrived early and there were no people but it still never got busy. There was a rope to swing into the water with and after 6 hours of that I still wanted to do more. This is probably one of the best things to do in Tanzania if you are a child. It is also lovely for aduLt’s as there are lots of pools and only 1 has a swing. This is also amazing scenery where there are palm trees hanging over the clear blue tranquil. The water is at about the perfect temperature warmed by a natural hot spring. There are small fish that will eat the dead skin on your feet and monkeys climbing on the palms arcing over the dark blue water. The fish will tickles first but add a bit more to this incredible scenery. There are restaurants on the edge of the water and you can have your meal on the edge of this incredible body of water. There are dragonflies and butterflies racing with g ace over the glistening water. I think this is an amazing paradise for kids as you can swing into the water swim and if you stay still have your feet nibbled wich I had trouble doing as it was a constant Choice between swinging and discovering another pool to swim in but after a long effort managed to stay still long enough to get my feet nibbled. This is something that you have to do in Moshi!!!!!!

A nice place to visit if you have a day to fill from Arusha or half a day from Moshi. Quite a distance off the main Arusha - Moshi road on a not very well maintained dirt road. Once there, you can take a dip in the pools formed by the hot (actually more like lukewarm) springs. Some good local food "chipsmayai" on offer. All in all, a nice place to visit.
