Details of Lake Chala Day Trip

You’ll be picked up after breakfast and make the drive to Lake Chala on the eastern side of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Your day of adventure starts with a guided hike through the lush forest that surrounds this crater lake. Along the way, you’ll have the chance to spot playful primates and a variety of other animal and bird-life.

After soaking in the view from the crater rim, you’ll descend to the water’s edge where you can choose to take a dip, enjoy a canoe safari, or simply take out a good book and read in the serenity.
