Natural hot spring, as opposed to a geothermal pool, is an actual natural wonder. It’s a spout of geothermally heated groundwater rising from Uganda’s earth’s crust. The temperature of the water can sometimes be perfect for bathing, other times, it needs to be cooled down as serious injury might be caused.
Natural hot springs are not only places where people come to recharge in nature but also where they socialize. Bathing in hot springs is also a way to meet locals and experience a fraction of Ugandan social life. Plus, there’s something otherworldly and sublime in bathing outdoors beneath the dancing aurora of a Ugandan Sunset.
Uganda is lavishly rewarded with natural hot springs, allowing everyone to enjoy a dip in the pleasantly warm water, running undisturbed by modern technology. They don’t require maintenance and often are free to use.
