We don't hire out tents, bedding or any other camping equipment so you will have to bring your own. The camp site is fully equipped with hot showers and clean flushing toilets.

Carnelley’s is a tranquil campsite and guest house with beautifully bushy grounds, where monkeys swing from the trees and hippos graze on the pier. The eco friendly camp was built with the open air surroundings in mind.

The camp prides itself on being eco-friendly with each accommodation designed to fit in with the local surroundings in an unobtrusive and harmonious way.

Each of the Bandas comfortably sleeps up to 6 and has an en suite bathroom. Bedding, blankets, lamps & mosquito nets are provided. The Camp has a private garden with its own garden furniture to help make your relaxation comfortable. The 7 new Bandas contain a large double bed and 2 single beds with an en suite bathroom and comfy veranda with a great view of the lake.

The cottages are perfect for a romantic get-away sleeping two in absolute comfort. Just like the banda's they are fully furnished with bedding, blankets, lamps and nets.

For those wanting to sleep under the stars and listen to the sounds of Africa, an inexpensive and ideal option is to bring your own tent and use the Carnelley's campsite. It's fully equipped with powerful, steaming hot showers and clean flushing toilets.

Carnelley's also has dormitories that sleep up to eight in comfort. They offer basic bedding & sheets and guests can either self cater or eat at the "Lazy Bones" bar & restaurant.

Lazy Bones bar is a great place to relax, the restaurant is known to produce some of the best food around the lake. All meals are extremely healthy and at very affordable prices. There is normally buffet lunch served at weekends. Most refreshments are available from smoothies to fresh juices cocktails, beers and liquors.

After your meal you can enjoy some live music or visit the games room for a game of pool. A satellite TV. is available so you will not miss that all important sports event. There is also a great selection of music and an ideal place to lie down, relax and read.

Too much music coming from the place next door. But otherwise we had a pleasant stay.

It was good place we had a nice stay. Only that it could be useful to note to the guests before hand that it is not possible to pay via credit card. Other than that, no complains.

The location was great and the landscape beautiful but the service was limited. The twin room was not very clean and well-kept and the restaurant was serving good but overpriced food.

We got checked into a wrong room the first night but we are not complaining because it was an upgrade from what we had booked. The transition to our room the next day was seamless however and for this we were grateful. We had an awesome stay.

We loved our stay: the food was great, process was easy, loved the volleyball court and the boat ride. Saw hippos on the lake shore at night. Great for families. Really close to Hell's Gate, which was amazing. Almost for sure coming back.

It was really good. We had a great stay apart from the slight problem where we were charged the full amount despite having made a deposit.
