How to Visit the Beautiful Kikuletwa Hotsprings in Tanzania

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.

The hot spring is located roughly an hour from Kilimanjaro International Airport and about 2 hours from downtown Arusha.  I have included a map with directions on how to get to the Kikuletwa Hotsprings from the Kilimanjaro International Airport for you to review below.
