Honet Badger is a delightful haven of peace, with clean excellent rooms, a relaxed atmosphere in a garden setting round a pool. But most of all the staff were uniformly a delight, good English, helpful and always smiling. Often laughing. Food couldn't be faulted either!

Rooms are clean and nice, food great, quiet area at end of dirt road. Staff very easy to work with. When we got in late (after 9 pm), they kept the kitchen open for the 11 of us. Very comfortable place away from the road.

Our family of four stayed at the Honey Badger Lodge for 2 nights after finishing a 6 day safari. It was the perfect place to wash off the safari dust and relax. Our kids, ages 11 and 12, LOVED the swimming pool. The grounds/gardens were very well maintained and the whole place was very peaceful. Everything was very well organized... More

We love Honey Badger and can't recommend it enough. Great accommodation in a lovely location. Great food, amazing pool and the staff are lovely and always happy to help. It's a lovely place to relax after a climb or safari, or just as a base to explore Moshi. We are regular visitors and look forward to our days there.

It is one of the lodges located in Moshi which they really care for their clients. We stayed there for 2 different nights. Before we did Kili and after Kili. I highly recommend them. Good food,clean swimming pool and they have solar power for emergency when electricity goes off.

I need to go to Moshi often, and the highlight of my trips is always my time spent at Honey Badger Lodge. I so look forward to going, and hate the leaving of this little paradise.
