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 Mountain Climbing

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 for you.

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 house
  • 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.

Honey Badger is proud to receive a Certificate of Excellence
Since taking over the lodge around 2 years ago, we have been working hard to create a unique environment. We want to showcase Tanzania and allow our guests to experience something real. We work to do this on a number of different levels; through exchanges with our staff and local community, the sights and smells all around us and not to forget the tastes as well. We are a small family run company based in a rural community. Whilst we have a ‘rustic’ appeal, we work to maintain high standards throughout our business set up and operations and are driven by our focus on community development.
