Kikuletwa Hot Springs and Maasai Village
Day Trip - Full Day
The road to the village may be dusty and bumpy, but the scenery along the way is breathtaking. Once in the village, you’ll have ample time to interact with the locals, chatting and asking questions.
Considering your local hosts may only communicate in Maasai language, your guide will also act as your interpreter during your interactions with the locals. Learn more about the Maasai culture as well as traditional medicinal plants used by Maasai as you walk around the village with your guide. Wind up your tour in the village with a visit to a typical Maasai house, the builders of which are, strangely, women and taste Maasai herbal tea.
Depart the village early in the afternoon and proceed to Kikuletwa Hot Springs which is situated on the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro between Arusha and Moshi. The natural make-up of Kikuletwa makes it one of Tanzania’s most beautiful spots for a day trip.
This secret gem has turquoise water that is glistening clear and refreshing. Despite being referred to as a hot spring, the water in Kikuletwa is cool and refreshing rather than hot, since the water source is from the Mount Kilimanjaro itself.
After swimming and some downtime, you will be transferred to Moshi or Arusha in the late afternoon.
