LAKE CHALA/FULL DAY EXCURSIONS

Lake Chala is a crater lake in a caldera  on the borders of Tanzania and Kenya on the eastern edge of Mount Kilimanjaro, not far from the town of Moshi. Depending on the time of year, it ranges in colour 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, fed and drained underground with a rate of about 10 million m³ / year.
The lake is home to the endemic Lake Chala tilapia, which is now considered Critically Endangered on the IUCN red list of threatened species.

Crocodiles were introduced to Lake Chala in the early 1900s, and in 2002, a woman was killed by a rare Dwarf crocodile while swimming in the lake.[Since then the local fishermen, tired of having their nets ripped to pieces, started an eradication programme by shooting and poisoning. It is doubtful if any crocodiles remain in the lake today.
This stunning volcanic area is rapidly growing in tourism and it is now possible to stay at Lake Chala at the new camp on the Tanzanian side.

Trip Price includes: Transport, entry fee, English/Spanish speeking guide.
Price Excludes: Insurance, personal Expenses, tips and all not listed above.

ARUSHA NATIONAL PARK

The closest national park to Arusha town – northern Tanzania’s safari capital – Arusha National Park is a multi-faceted jewel, often overlooked by safari goers, despite offering the opportunity to explore a beguiling diversity of habitats within a few hours.
The entrance gate leads into shadowy montane forest inhabited by inquisitive blue monkeys and colourful turacos and trogons – the only place on the northern safari circuit where the acrobatic black-and-white colobus monkey is easily seen. In the midst of the forest stands the spectacular Ngurdoto Crater, whose steep, rocky cliffs enclose a wide marshy floor dotted with herds of buffalo and warthog.

Further north, rolling grassy hills enclose the tranquil beauty of the Momela Lakes, each one a different hue of green or blue. Their shallows sometimes tinged pink with thousands of flamingos, the lakes support a rich selection of resident and migrant waterfowl, and shaggy waterbucks display their large lyre-shaped horns on the watery fringes. Giraffes glide across the grassy hills, between grazing zebra herds, while pairs of wide-eyed dik-dik dart into scrubby bush like overgrown hares on spindly legs.

Although elephants are uncommon in Arusha National Park, and lions absent altogether, leopards and spotted hyenas may be seen slinking around in the early morning and late afternoon. It is also at dusk and dawn that the veil of cloud on the eastern horizon is most likely to clear, revealing the majestic snow-capped peaks of Kilimanjaro, only 50km (30 miles) distant.

But it is Kilimanjaro’s unassuming cousin, Mount Meru - the fifth highest in Africa at 4,566 metres (14,990 feet) – that dominates the park’s horizon. Its peaks and eastern footslopes protected within the national park, Meru offers unparalleled views of its famous neighbour, while also forming a rewarding hiking destination in its own right.

CHAGGA LEGEND
Chagga legend tells that a long time ago a young chagga woman found herself pregnant out of wedlock. She decided to kill herself by jumping from the top of the waterfall. After contemplating on top she changed her mind. However, just as she was turning around to leave, a leopard approached her from behind. He jumped and pushed her down the fall into her death.

BAGAMOYO DAY EXCURSIONS

Bagamoyo was once one of the most important dhow ports along the East African coast and the terminus of the trade caravan route linking Lake Tanganyika with Indian Ocean. Unloaded here before being shipped to Zanzibar and elsewhere, were slaves, ivory, salt and copra. In 1868 Missionaries established freedom Village at Bagamoyo as a shelter for ransomed slaves and for the remainder of the century the town served as an important way station for missionaries traveling from Zanzibar to the country's interior.

Many European explorers, including Burton, Stanley and Livingstone began and ended their trips here. From 1887 to 1891, Bagamoyo was the capital of German East Africa and 1888 it was the site of the first major uprising against the colonial government. When the capital was transferred to Dar es Salaam in 1891, the town rapidly lost its significance and almost forgotten. Today, Bagamoyo is a sleepy place (recovering slowly due to tourism industry expansion) and many of its buildings are crumpling in ruins but with extra-ordinary attractive beaches.

The Roman Catholic Museum - North of Bagamoyo town, there is an interesting museum run by a Catholic church (mission). The museum has interesting displays on the history of Bagamoyo and a section of some of the European explorers. The museum curator maintains an amicable atmosphere by allowing good visitors register their names in the museum “friends' book” and give them cards with “friends' number” to be used in any future correspondence with the museum.
Admission is free but donation will be appreciated. On the same compound is the chapel where Livingstone's body was laid before being taken to Zanzibar town en route to Westminster Abbey. The Catholic mission is as old as the establishment of freedom village by France in 1868 and the oldest mission in Tanzania. Scattered around town are some carved doors and various disrepair buildings dating back from the German colonial era.

The Bagamoyo Art College - About half a kilometer south of Bagamoyo along the road to Dar es Salaam is "Chuo cha Sanaa" which translates to art College. This is a well-known theatre and arts college. There are performances of traditional dancing and drumming especially when the school is session.

The Kaole Ruins - which include the remains of an oldest mosque in East Africa dating from the 13th Century and gravestones estimated to date from the 15th Century, are situated about 5 km south of Bagamoyo along the beach. This mosque was built when Kaole was an important Arabic trading post, long before Bagamoyo had assumed any significance.

Hanging Place - This was a place used by the German colonial government to hang to death the Africans who refused to follow the colonial rules in the late eighteen century. During the German rule Bagamoyo was a capital city of Tanzania.
A trip begins at 8:30 am Dar es salaam and about one hour we will arrive Bagamoyo and start tour places listed above with Picnic lunch.

PRICE INCLUDES: Transport, entry fees, Lunch box and trip guide.
PRICE EXCLUDE: Tips, insurance, personal spending, alcoholic and soft drinks and all not listed here.
