Lake Chala

Lake Chala Day Trip
A crater lake in a caldera at the border between Tanzania and Kenya and not far from Moshi town, Lake Chala is said to be the deepest inland water body in Africa with a depth of about 3km.

Filled and drained by underground streams, the lake ranges in color from deep blue to turquoise and green.

Take a walk down the 100m deep crater rim to the lake shore and cool your feet at the water's edge among the rocks as you watch the water ripple peacefully through the lake in shimmering delight.

Hike back up and take a walk around the Lake Chala Reserve looking out for the monkeys, baboons and birds before you return back to your Comfortable Home Away from Home – Kili-Konka.
