When people picture lycra-clad cyclists climbing epic switchbacks or zooming down scenic coastal roads, Africa doesn’t usually figure.

The Chemka Hot Springs are an oasis in the hinterland of the Kilimanjaro region, situated 69 kilometres from Arusha. At these idyllic underground springs with the crystal clear, turquoise water, you can enjoy the perfect rest after a strenuous Kilimanjaro climb or adventurous wilderness safari.
