1. Guided hikes to Lake Chala
A trip to River Lumi Resort is not complete without our free guided hike to the mystical Crater Lake. Lake Chala is an inter-territorial lake that straddles the border between Kenya and Tanzania and was formed as a result of the volcanic activity of the Mount Kilimanjaro. It is surrounded by a steep crater rim with a maximum height of 170 metres.
2. Tour to Lake Jipe
Lake Jipe which is located approximately 32Kms from the Resort is a shallow water lake lying astride the Kenya Tanzania border. The lake which has spectacular views of the Pare Mountains in Tanzania and Mount Kilimanjaro is fed by River Lumi and the streams from the Pare Mountains.
3. The River Lumi escapades
Our morning and evening guided walks enables our guests to enjoy the adventurous and historic spots on the flow of the Lumi River including Mbalani and Njoro.
