Morning after heavy and delicious breakfast, set yourself ready to a day hike to Kilimanjaro Mountain,If you’re almost sure whether you’re ready for a full Kilimanjaro adventure, you would possibly want to require one in all our shorter Kilimanjaro trips via Marangu route. just one or two days on the mountain are enough to administer you a full picture of what it takes to be a part of a Kilimanjaro trekking expedition.

This adventure is ideal if you travel with children who aren’t ready for the complete hike yet, or if your holiday is simply too short but you continue to want to enjoy the trip.

A one-day trip leads you up to Mandara Hut and back to the entry gate.

Day 4. Kikuletwa (Chemka) Hot Springs

Maji Moto, known locally as Kikuletwa Hot-springs, is paradisiac oasis amidst the Tanzanian savannah, offers captivating, Bounty-styled views, crystal-clean water and dense vegetation around. Located in 3-hour drive from Arusha. Chemka Hot Springs is that the best place to go to after a Mount Meru hike, Kilimanjaro climbing or a safari adventure.

Chemka oasis may be a unique phenomenon – it’s the sole place in Tanzania (and presumably within the whole Eastern Africa Region), where the groundwater actively interacted with geothermal sources, forming variety of small lakes with warm, never-stagnating water, which purity isn’t inferior to the simplest Dominican or Maldivian resorts.
