Photo Diary – Finding My Zen at Lake Chala

Aaaaaaah Lake Chala. The perfect place to get some down time from the hustle and bustle of Moshi life. Located just 1.5 hours away on the border of Tanzania and Kenya, this tranquil location is just one spectacular example of how much natural beauty this country has to offer.

Lake Chala is believed to be the caldera of a volcanic eruption which happened over three millions years ago. Now all that remains is a beautiful blue lake surrounded by lush green forest, where you can see an abundance of different monkeys and birdlife if you spend some time kayaking around. There is also a number of hiking routes (one which even takes you to the border of Kenya) but we spent most of our time chilling by the lake with the occasional swim.

Here’s just a snapshot of what we got up to on our relaxing getaway at the Lake Chala Safari Camp.

    I guess there weren’t any crocodiles or anything if you went swimming? Looks pretty idyllic to me 🙂
