We had a nice day at the Hotsprings (rather Warmsprings) but we left when some locals used it as a private hotel room to do things that they probably couldn't do at home.

Googles are definitly a nice thing to bring!

Our guide from African Komodo Tours suggested coming here before going to the airport. I'm so glad we did! There's no way you would find this place without a local. The water was warm and crystal clear and the swing rope gave us entertainment. We brought a picnic lunch and hung out for a few hours. It was the perfect way to relax after climbing Kilimanjaro. The changing room was a straw shack with not much privacy but there were not many people around for it to be an issue.

Kikuletwa is really one of the most magical places that I have ever visited in my life. I love this place! This gem just pops out in the middle of nowhere. I went with Emmanuel; a great guide. He is trustworthy, very enthusiastic, holds 'mzungu' time and makes sure you will have the best experience! Don't miss out on this place and to make it even more special, make sure you go with Emmanual (+255 744 228 747). Have fun!

A must if you have a spare day in Moshi! We weren't sure if we should go or not but after getting a good price (30usd) for taxi ( if you want number for good and safe taxi in Moshi write me a message) we decided to go and really didn't regret it! Our first plan was not to swim since we were afraid of parasites but when we arrived it was to beautiful not to swim and plenty of other guests that enjoyed the water. We did not get sick. Possible to eat and buy drinks there. Warning for bumpy roads though! I will let pictures speak for them selves.

Reachable from both Arusha and Moshi although it should be considerably closer from Moshi.

It's a great place to spend half a day as it feels like an oasis in the middle in the desert. The swimming area is relatively small, but if you have spent multiple days sweating in the burning sun, this is a nice change of things. Bring a book if you want to stay longer and relax close to the water. During weekends and in high-season, it might be a bit busier. Go there early (before noon) if you want to see the springs without a lot of people. You can buy food and drinks at the place for a fair price. Of course bring swimwear and a towel.
The toilets are outhouses and their smell during the summer is an acquired taste. Bring toilet paper as it might not be around.

General information getting there:

A lot of tour operators organise daily trips towards the springs asking prices around $30-35 dollar per person. However, it is easy to organise yourself: Find a taxi driver that is willing to take you to the hot springs and back (meaning that he will stay at the location for the duration of your stay). Negotiate before leaving and you should be able to get a taxi for between 80 000 and 90 000 shilling (around $40 which you can share by everyone in the taxi). Some taxi drivers might be less experienced by driving there and get lost a bit. But they'll ask the way and you can enjoy the view a bit longer ;-)
If you organise on your own, you will have to pay an entrance fee of 10 000 shilling per person and bring your own food. But it will still be considerably cheaper than the organised day trips.
Feel free to tip the driver.

We talked to people who went there with public busses and bodabodas. It's extremely cheap, even compared to a taxi, but it takes a lot more time to get there. (I think around 1h by taxi and around 2h to 2h30 by public transport).
I don't know the specifics, but I'm sure if you ask around. People will be able to get you there.

This place is enjoyable for 'less than able people' (e.g. elderly or people with crutches) although getting out of the water might be very difficult for them.

I don't think theft happens frequently at this location, but it's never a bad thing to pay attention to your stuff even when being in the water.
