About this Property

Lake Chala lies on the the South Eastern flank of Mount Kilmanjaro just 55 kilometers from Moshi, near the Holili / Taveta border post to Kenya. Also known as Chala Crater Lake, Lake Chala is one of Tanzania’s hidden gems. Fed entirely by underground springs from Mt Kilimanjaro, the turquoise blue and green waters are surrounded by diverse plants, trees and wildlife. This special place guarantees that your stay at the Lake Chala Safari Lodge is an unforgettable experience. Built on the edge of this mystical caldera lake, against a dramatic volcanic backdrop is the Lake Chala Safari Lodge and Campsite, the perfect place to unwind and absorb the serenity and tranquility of this romantic piece of the African bush.
