Marangu Waterfalls, Kurikye Caves and Hot Springs can all be visited as part of an enjoyable day trip from Arusha. The Marangu Waterfalls lie at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro, surrounded by lush landscapes and can be explored by foot. After hiking and descending through the stunning, green landscape for approximately one hour, you will reach a huge waterfall where guests can swim and take in the views. You can also watch the ancient techniques of traditional Chagga (the largest tribe in Northern Tanzania) coffee roasting where you can pick, roast, brew and drink you very own cup of delicious fresh coffee. The Hot Springs are located approximately 2 hours’ drive from Arusha town in Chemka. Hidden by a beautiful green forest, the natural hot springs are ideal for taking a relaxing dip or simply to use as a backdrop for a picnic or BBQ.
