Lake Chala
Beauty and harmony, nature at it's best

Are you dreaming of an ancient Africa?  The rugged beauty, the tranquility, the grandeur, the peace. Visit Lake Chala where all these factors combine to make your stay at Lake Chala an unforgettable experience.

Lake Chala, a mystical caldera lake, a gem as brilliant as the precious Tanzanite itself, and quite simply,  just different to anywhere else. 

The Lake Chala Tented Lodge, set against a dramatic volcanic backdrop is the perfect place to unwind and absorb the serenity and tranquility of this romantic piece of African.  

A top attraction from Moshi, Lake
 Chala feels so remote, yet is easily accessible, making it the perfect place 
to stay, to slip away from the hustle and bustle of  every day life. 

Stay at our new luxury tented camp with elegant en-suite tents, all with stunning views; enjoy fine dining at the new Caldera Restaurant over looking the crater lake, Kilimanjaro and the Chala savanna; swim in the azure waters or paddle round the lake in Kayaks and enjoy the bird life of the lake shore forest.

Camping Made Easy. 

The Lake Chala Safari Camp also has six campsites all of which provide excellent facilities, including tents 
for hire, bar and restaurant with water and cooking facilities on site for self sufficient camping.

An ideal site for both day trips or longer stays, and a great stop over for long distance travelers and cycling groups. 

Take a walk through this website and see some of what Chala has to offer.

NB. Visitors to Lake Chala are now liable for a fee, charged by CITES at the barrier on the road  before our land.
