Therefore the perfect stopover for a cultural tour before or after a wildlife safari in Arusha or a Kilimanjaro mountain-trekking.
Facilities at Kikuletwa Hot springs
There are not a lot of facilities at Chemka Hot Springs, so it is recommended to arrive with your bathing suit on, ready for swimming. You can leave your changing clothes in the car, with your driver. I have been to the ATM just before visiting the hot springs, and my driver kept my backpack with him, making sure that it’s safe.
The changing room is kind of hut without a roof where with gaps between the wooden branches and no flooring. It’s better to change in the car if you have this possibility or wrap a towel around you.
The toilets are very basic, the squatty type, but clean. You do need to bring your own toilet paper.
