A recent guest's review
My 10 day stay at Honey Badger Lodge was a real gift of a holiday. Although on my own, I never felt alone and was always warmly included by Jenny and her mother, Jane and by the local staff. Breakfast by the pool...radiant sunshine...surrounded by lush verdant growth....views of Kilimanjaro...daily lessons in picking up useful Swahili phrases (thanks Mercedes!)...super clean room, comfy bed and hot solar powered showers...amazingly fresh and innovative menu...(thanks Mama Lucy) and the warm family atmosphere - this place is a real gem to discover. The place caters for camping groups, volunteer workers, individual or family groups. You can enjoy absolute peace and quiet and privacy or socialize at the bar - the choice is yours. What impressed me was the way Jenny and Moses aim to cater for any need be it adventurous, cultural or simply the need for restorative time, they offer it all. My safari trip was well organized and met every expectation. Moshi is only a challenging and cheap 10 minute ride by local bus (daladala).
What really wants to make me return is friendships I made with the family, staff and opportunity to donate time and energy to the numerous community projects this place supports. If you want to experience life with the locals and enjoy the comforts of home...this is what you want ... a hidden patch in paradise
