We leave Marangu town 0830 am and heard towards Himo town using main road. It’s approximately 7 kms from Marangu town to the small town of Himo. The road is tarmac road with no traffic. After a few minutes catching our breath and refilling our water containers and eating some energy bars, we will head towards Taveta border (Kenyan and Tanzanian Boarder) which is 10 kms from Himo Town. The road is Tarmac with much reduced traffic. At few meters before the border we will go left towards the road that leads to Lake Chala. It is 14 kms to the lake from here. The road is rough with gravel and rocks, and is dusty all the way to the lake. At approximately 6 to 7 kms to the lake, the vegetation changes to evergreen forest that is host to many mammals like Elephant, Primates, Antelopes and different species of birds. On reaching the lake we will have a picnic lunch, then we will rest for some time before descending down to the Lake. At the lake you can have a boat ride around the lake. After spending some time here we will go back to the camp where we’ll have soft drinks, dinner and stay overnight.
