Lake Chala is a crater lake on the border of Tanzania and Kenya. It is about an hour and a half drive from Moshi town.
Lake Chala is a great day trip or the perfect place to camp for the night.
You will hike through savanna woodlands down to the lake, spend the day swimming in the lake and relaxing on the shore before hiking back up the crater walls.
At certain times of the year it is possible to sit on the deck overlooking the lake and watch families of elephants, monkeys, and baboons drink out of the watering holes, which are adjacent to the lake.
There is a beautiful campsite at Lake Chala with a campfire, cooking facilities, and a bar.
