Full Day Lake Chala

Full Day Lake Chala Day Trip

Full Day Lake Chala. Lake Chala, also known as Lake Challa, is a crater lake that straddles the border between Kenya and Tanzania. The lake formed approximately 250,000 years ago. The lake is east of Mount Kilimanjaro, 8 kilometres north of Taveta, Kenya, and 55 kilometres east of Rombo District. This lake is fed by underground springs from Mt. Kilimanjaro. Lake Chala is a unique caldera lake, and is thought to be the deepest inland body of water in Africa. From lush lake shore forest to stunning volcanic Savannah; from river beds marvelously carved through ancient rock, to thick bush or open ‘mbuga’. Walking at Lake Chala is a magical experience that will put you back in touch with nature.
