The Beautiful Kikuletwa Hotsprings in Tanzania

Kikuletwa Hotsprings-0538

The Kikuletwa Hotsprings is a spring oasis near Arusha, Tanzania.  It is a popular destination for both locals and tourists looking to get away from the heat.  The crystal clear blue-green water, surrounded by beautiful forest, is absolutely stunning.

In addition to swimming in the cool, refreshing water, there is a rope swing that gets plenty of action.  If you aren’t too squirmishy, you can dip your feet in the water and the resident fish will give you a free pedicure (as they like to eat away the dead skin from your feet).  It’s actually pretty ticklish.

If you get hungry, they serve both refreshments and Chipsi Mayai, a local egg dish that translates from Swahili to mean eggs and chips.  It’s very delicious.
