Lake Chada Day Trip

Located about an hour and a half by car from Moshi is Lake Chala, a crater lake on the border of Tanzania and Kenya. This beautiful caldera is a great place for a day trip – with overnight camping offered. The day can be spent hiking down to the waters edge for a swim and to relax. The walk down to the lake takes about 45 minutes, walking through forest area with trees filled with playful monkeys, enjoying great views of the lake on the way down. Back at the top of the crater there is a great restaurant with a deck area where you can relax over dinner and drinks while overlooking the lake. Depending on the season you may also be able to see families of elephants at the nearby watering holes. The campsite at Lake Chala is equipped with a campfire, cooking facilities and a bar.

We will depart from Moshi just after breakfast, heading out towards the Lake. After spending the day, we will make our way back into town in the late afternoon. There is an option of staying overnight at Lake Chala, either at their campsite in tents or in the “luxury tented rooms”. In this case, we would depart for Moshi the next day after breakfast. If camping overnight, a chef is provided to make your meals if you wish.
