Camp Carnelly's

South Lake Road, Naivasha, Nakuru, Kenya

Camp Carnelly’s offers simple budget rooms and nicely designed banda chalets, but the real pleasure of a visit here lies in camping in this idyllic fever tree forest on the southern shore of Lake Naivasha. Vervets and colobus monkeys flit through the canopy, hippos graze on the shoreline at night, and the area is a bird-watcher's dream. Come prepared to self-cater and your evenings around a Naivasha campfire could become a highlight of your trip to Kenya.

PROS

  • A low electric fence offers security from feisty hippos at night
  • the wood-fired pizzas are the best in Kenya

CONS

  • The restaurant could be considered unnecessarily expensive
  • the open air showers (with wonderful supplies of hot water) don’t have changing areas or anywhere to leave clothes
