Tour Itinerary

Meet our professional naturalist guide/driver at the lodge, who will deliver a short safari info briefing, after which, we travel to the Lake Chala. You can choose any activity from a nature bush walk, canoeing on the lake, fishing or swim in the Lake.
The bushwalk will last (2-4) hours depending on the pace. The walk offers scenic views with Kilimanjaro in the background, you will go down the rocky gullies formation to the water.
After the walk, we can have lunch at the Lake Chala lodge with a spectacular view of the lake as well as Kilimanjaro view in the clear days. If you want to paddle in a canoe, this is a one-hour activity and if you want to go fishing it can be extended. You can find the specific Lake Chala tilapia, though you must fish and release since this is an endangered species. You can swim in Lake Chala but it is recommended to stay close to the shore if you are not a strong swimmer. There a no dangerous aquatic creature but the depth of the lake with a seventy meter drop off is a caution.
Later in the evening, the driver will take you back to the lodge for your next adventure.
