Enjoy a taste of genuine African hospitality...
Honey Badger is a family-run lodge that offers comfortable solar-powered accommodation.
We organise tailor-made safaris and mountain climbing expeditions as well as other
local activities. Stay at Honey Badger and help us to support our local community.
The Honey Badger Experience...
Situated in a rural community, the lodge offers breathtaking views of Mount Kilimanjaro (the highest mountain in Africa). We, Joseph and Jenny, and the Honey Badger staff warmly welcome you, and endeavor to make Honey Badger feel like home. We recognize that everyone has different preferences and expectations for their travels and are ready to accommodate your needs.
Ethical Mountain climbing trips and Tailor made Safaris
Whether you are looking to for an awesome adventure or a break away from the norms
of every day life; Tanzania has so much to offer. We invite you to come and visit
the highly acclaimed UNESCO world heritage site and one of the recently awarded
7 nature wonders of the world, namely the Ngorongoro Crater, or gaze in awe at the
incredible sight of the wildebeest migration through the Serengeti. Why not come
and enjoy the cool forests of the Lake Manyara national park or counting the abundance
of elephants in Tarangire? We are also experts in getting our guests off the beaten
track, so get in touch with us if you would like to explore more than the average
tour operators offer.
Maybe you are looking to scale the highest mountain in Africa; the Mighty Mount
Kilimanjaro, we have experienced guides that take our guests up all the different
routes. Perhaps you would like to also climb the magnificent Mount Meru or enjoy
the less well trodden climbing paths up Ol’Doniyo Lengai we can organise everything
Whether you are an individual, a group or a tour operator, we can arrange your holiday
for you. For many a Tanzanian safari and Mountain climb are once in a lifetime opportunities
and we know how important it is to get it right. We tailor make all our packages
to suit our guests needs.
When people choose to plan their Tanzanian adventure with us they are not just getting
a lodge and tour company, they are getting a concerned friend who wants to be sure
everything goes well!
Finally but most importantly, when you choose to stay/travel with us you are helping
us to further our support to our local community. Honey Badger is committed to be
a centre for community development. Last year we are proud to highlight just a few
of the things we achieved...
- Built two fuel efficient stoves and trained others how to build stoves and they
have now built more in the community
- Conducted first aid course
- Planted over 100 trees in the community and developed a tree nursery
- Reviewed the teaching in the local kindergarten
- Supported the teachers in the secondary school (passing on key teaching skills)
- Training in bead making, tie and dye and other craft items and setup a local craft
shop stocked with items from and for the school,
- Built the foundations of the wall around the dormitory and for a new a new chicken
- Supported the school to plant a vegetable patch and buy the purchase at the lodge
- Supported teacher training programme
- Developed a school sponsorship programme and set up a mechanism to receive funds
(Creating a second chance)
We still have the rice paddy that we purchased for the local school in 2010. And
this continues to provide not only food for them but also enough rice to sell to
provide some additional income for the school.
Thank you for choosing to climb with Honey Badger Lodge. Without the support of
guests like you we would not have been in a position to help so many. Please also
contact us if you would like to climb for a worthwhile charity, we are happy to
help you with connections on this side.
