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 lakeshore forest to stunning volcanic savannah; from river beds marvelously carved through the ancient rock to the thick bush.
Walking at Lake Chala is a magical experience that will put you back in touch with nature. 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 from monkies to Colobus to baboons again from dik-dik to kudu, to the elephant. Chala is an untouched part of a truly ancient land and a must visit the place.
