The views, food, and staff at Camp Carnelley's were wonderful. Being able to see the hippos eating onsite at night was truly amazing! Although we had a cook for our evening meals, the camp provided excellent breakfasts and being able to relax with a drink and dessert in their lounge was a real pleasure. The bandas are separated and private,... More

We were about to drive to another camp but a friend came across this one. The view was amazing and we decided to have lunch at their restaurant before deciding we wanted to camp. The restaurant had a volleyball net and table tennis etc. We eventually decided to camp there. The toilets were nearby and quite decent. The highlight was... More

My friend and I had a great time at Camp Carnelley's! It was exactly the unwind we were looking forward to. They had lots of different bed arrangements and we opted for the twin rooms. This gave us plenty of space while still feeling secure in a fenced-in camp and not in an open tent. ANIMALS CAN BE SCARY AT... More

This place is super special for my fiance and I. We truly enjoyed the scenery, the area and the restaurant. The food is unbelievable, great value for money especially when compared to a lot of the other options in the area. There were guided tours on the lake to check out wildlife and the sunrise is absolutely amazing right on... More

Grassy flat camping stretches between old fever trees from the waters edge up to the bar restaurant and lounge area. Morning light is alive and rich with the sounds of geese, hardedas, hippos and colobus monkeys playing. A chattering collection of a lot of different birds welcoming the day. The amenities are clean and quaint. Very personal and private showering... More

Stayed at this camp last Friday and Saturday night, would not return. During the day it is a lovely camp, relaxed and chilled out. Unfortunately at night, despite lots of signs about not making noise, people on the camp site were very noisy and shouting. I also noted at least 2 dogs when there were signs saying no dogs allowed.... More

Carnelleys have maintained nature at its best! The green Surroundings make Carnelleys the perfect place to go relax, enjoy water activities and yet stay within budget. Very great service & clean bathrooms add to the experience. Banda's are simplly furnished, clean & quite warm at nite! The lazybones restaurant was the best place to pass the evening which gave a...

This place is an absolute paradise right at lake naivasha. Dorm rooms are basic but okay, the beds not super-comfy but alright. Hot showers and clean toilets. The atmosphere is super-relaxed and the food is simply divine. Staff was very friendly and kind. you can rent bikes and do a boat safari where we got really close to hippos and... More

My wife and I decided to try out our newly purchased roof tent for our 4wd. We selected Carnelly's for the experience. Nice easy drive across from Nairobi and into the Rift Valley. It cost us 800/- each for camping (about US$8 each) and you get to pick your own piece of ground - there are no specific allocated spaces... More
