Chemka Kikuletwa Hotsprings gets its name from the water that bubbles in underground caves. Surrounded by fig trees, this area is a hidden gem in the midst of a semi-arid landscape. Here you may find a diversity of colorful birds amongst an abundance of plant life and neighboring indigenous tribes. It is one of the best places to swim. Emanating from within the earth, the geo-thermally warmed water is constantly renewed and is therefore very fresh, clear and clean. It’s a very pleasant place to spend a couple of hours with family, or to relax before or after a flight, climb or safari. The distance from Airport Planet Lodge to the hot springs is 27 Km and the journey normally takes around 45 minutes so one should allow at least 4 hours for this excursion.
Transfer, towels, water and picnic lunch is included in the daytrip from the Lodge to the geo-thermal waters of Chemka Hot Springs. Other soft drinks and beers are available to buy at the beautiful site that’s surrounded by trees. An optional catered BBQ lunch at the springs can be arranged for larger groups and with prior planning. Round-trip transport from the Lodge makes this a hassle-free way to escape the city for a day at the hot springs, where you can swim, relax tired traveling muscles, and enjoy an included picnic lunch before returning to the Lodge or flying out.
