I stayed at the Honey Badger Lodge for 3 weeks whilst doing volunteer work with the Second Chance Education Centre which is behind the lodge. From the minute that I arrived I was taken care of (my bags didn't show up with me and Jenny, the owner immediately gave me some of hers) and felt as though I was part of the family straight away. The staff became my friends and Jenny & Joey were the most amazing hosts. The whole atmosphere of Honey Badger was awesome - the grounds make you feel as though you could either spend the day being pampered and sitting by the pool (or conversely do one of the many activities in Moshi that the Lodge offers), the rooms are comfortable and the food was so good I wanted to take the Chef, Florence, home with me. As a solo traveller not once was I by myself. There was always travellers coming through with great stories and everyone sat together at dinner time like a big community, as if we hadn't just met the day before.
Working at Second Chance Education Centre was one of the best things I have ever done in my life - the kids were so beautiful and wanting to learn about everything they could get their hands on. There is no doubt that i'll be coming back to the school and Honey Badger. Thanks so much Jenny, Joey and Amos!
