Ticking Lake Chala & Jipe Off your Bucketlist

Lake Jipe
Lake Jipe lies astride Kenya and Tanzania border and is teeming with aquatic life and Bird watching. It’s also one of the places in Kenya where you can go for a “game drive” on a boat.
Lake Chala
Lake Chala is a deep crater lake on the borders of Tanzania and Kenya on the eastern edge of Mount Kilimanjaro, not far from Lake Jipe. Depending on the time of year, it ranges in color from deep blue to turquoise and green. It is surrounded by a 100 meters high crater rim. The lake is fed by groundwater flows, which come from Mount Kilimanjaro. A rare species of Tilapia is only found here in the whole world.
