Things to do

Soak in the Maji Moto hot springs at Nyerere National Park

The pools are in the middle of nowhere – it’s as if you’ve discovered your own private forest bath…

By Simon Magaigwa
Camp Manager, Serena Mivumo River Lodge

Follow your guide through indigenous forest to a hidden hot spring, where you can swim in warm, sapphire waters. The Maji Moto hot springs are just a short drive from Mivumo River Lodge, yet it feels like the sparkling pools are in the middle of nowhere – it’s as if you’ve discovered your own private forest bath. Guests love having the opportunity to walk and bathe among nature after being stuck in a safari vehicle.

When you arrive at the site, your guide will take you on a hike through the thick woodland where you’ll be surrounded by bird calls. Eventually, you’ll emerge at a secret ravine covered with lush vegetation where you’ll find the hot pools. These are formed when sulphurous water flows over the rocks, creating a series of beautiful ponds where you can soak in soothing waters. It’s the perfect way to relax after a hectic safari schedule.
