What you'll do

To begin the activity, we will meet at the departure location - Mount Meru hotel (pickups can be arranged from various locations at an extra cost). We will take a 20-30minute drive through the Sekei villages to our destination: Themi falls leisure park. After arriving, we will take care of formalities at the gate and begin our hike through the peaceful forests.
The hike is medium paced, 30-40mins through the quietness of the well preserved Themi leisure park.

We will arrive at our destination (Themi waterfalls) at around mid-afternoon. You will have lunch and drinks in a very eco-friendly manner. If you wish to go for a swim in the waterfall's natural swimming pool, please bring swimming gear.

Typically we will spend as much time as you want at the waterfalls. When you've had enough of it, we will begin our walk back to the gate where you have a choice of either walking back for the active trekkers or taking a car.
Other things to note
Pickup location is flexible. Transport can be arranged from various locations in and out of Arusha; please inquire if you can be picked up from your location before you dismiss.

Arusha's has got some of the most beautiful and peaceful landscapes and attractions where you can enjoy the surroundings, so if you are looking to get away from the busy city and enjoy the quiet and peaceful waterfalls, welcome aboard this experience.

Where you'll be

We will visit Themi leisure park. This well-preserved government property is located beyond the Sekei villages, only 40mins from Arusha town. The site is a camping site but also a leisure park with a breathtaking waterfall. The forests are very well preserved and usually, it isn't very crowded allowing a much-needed aloneness in the wilderness.
The waterfall and pool is the highlight of our hike but nature enthusiasts will also enjoy the hike.

Na een hobbelige taxirit de berg op, begon de wandeling naar de waterval, vele keren de rivier overstekend en opkijkend naar een enorme groene muur. De gids wist veel te vertellen over de omgeving. We hebben zelfs blue monkeys gezien, wat zo midden op de dag best zeldzaam is.

Jerome's experience was exceptional. I highly recommend this experience. Highly. Be sure to do some stretches and stay adventurous! The environment was breathtaking. I recommend if you have a camping canteen container, bring it with you. You may want to bottle up some of the amazing spring water to take with you for the hike back. Jerome is a wealth of knowledge and that is priceless!

Ali is a fantastic guide! He picked me up and took me straight to the waterfall hike. The hike itself is not too difficult, steep in some points but overall pretty easy. It was s really great experience, I definitely could not have done this alone and I'mvery grateful of the service Ali provided

A beautiful waterfall, slightly slippery on the way there as you walk along the water but definitely worth the short trek. The car ride to the Nature Park is also very scenic. A great quick getaway from Arusha, and Ali is the friendliest host!
