    Lake Chala – a lovely place and great lodge/campsite, but there is now a new government fee to visit the lake of US$25 per person per day, plus $10 per vehicle. This is in addition to the lodge/camp prices. On their own, the lodge/camp prices are very reasonable, but the new additional fee adds $120 to the cost of a two-night weekend away for 2 people. Lake Chala is nice, but simply not worth this new extra fee. The Usambara mountains further south are just as nice and much better value!
