About this trip

 

Lake Chala is a unique caldera lake, and is thought  to be the deepest inland body of water in Africa. This lake is fed by  underground springs from Mt. Kilimanjaro. 

The lake has a great diversity of life. 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. 

The lake is fed by groundwater flows, which come from Mount  Kilimanjaro, fed and drained underground with a rate of about 10 million  m³ / year. Depending on the time of year, it ranges in colour from deep  blue to turquoise and green, it is surrounded by a 100 metres high  crater rim.

Chala has a huge variety of amazing trees, grasses and plants; some  are unique to the area. According to the time of year there are hundreds  of species of butterflies and birds, including spectacular birds of  prey. The African Fish Eagle, with its haunting techniques, Verreaux’s  Eagle, Augur Buzzards and many other species of birds can be seen around  the crater walls. Wild mammals do vary including Blue Monkeys, Colobus  Monkeys, baboons, dik-dik, kudu and elephant. Chala is an untouched part  of a truly ancient land and a must visit place.

Activities at this lake: walking safaris, canoeing, swimming and fishing.
