Lake Chala, a hidden gem, a perfect place to relax and unwind from the busy city life. The remote caldera lake on the border of Tanzania & Kenya is only 55km from Moshi and therefore the perfect get away for a day. Pure tranquillity and beautiful nature await you at the lake. Explore the area on one of the many possible hikes, swim in the crystal clear water, kayak across borders or simply enjoy the stunning vistas of an untouched Africa.
An hour and a half drive from Moshi to the East lies Lake Challa, a crater lake on the boarder of Tanzania and Kenya. On arrival the hike starts at the rim of its crater, enjoying the view down on this amazing lake. The trek will take approximately 45 minutes through savanna woodlands leading down to the lake itself. You will spend the full day swimming and relaxing on the lake shore before return hike up the crater walls. There is an adorable campsite at Lake Challa with a place for camp fire, cooking facilities and a bar. In the late afternoon we will arrange the transfer for your return to Moshi.
