“Africa at its best”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

This is Africa at its best.Warm hearted, spotlessly clean, beautiful gardens complete with monkeys and a sparkling pool. Rooms are simple but nicely decorated and the new rooms are fabulous. The pool sparkles under the shadow of Kilimanjaro ,when the mountain decides to show her summit, the views are stupendous. Above all, the owners and their staff are wonderful and proud to be associated with the Honey Badger. The philosophy of the Honey Badger of self improvement and self worth and pride.needs to be applied to Africa .This was my third visit and it just gets better each visit. Thank you Jenny and Joey and all the Honey Badger staff for making our stay again so wonderful.

We enjoyed the peaceful location with nearby views of Kilimanjaro after a rigorous safari. Beautiful pool area, spacious room, delicious cocktails and extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming staff. Loved the weekend pizzas and coffee tour they organised for us. They also organise cars to take you into Moshi and to airport. Great to see the community focus. Well recommended.

I last reviewed Honey Badger almost two years ago and since then I've become a regular visitor. I've watched this place develop and grow into a superb little lodge with excellent facilities and staff (most of whom have been there since I paid my first visit nearly 3 years ago). Nothing seems to be too much trouble for them - on my latest visit they even fixed my glasses and washed my car when I wasn't looking. The staff obviously have a very good relationship with the owners and vice versa and they all seem to take such a pride in the lodge and their work there.

There are now more rooms available, and what used to be a camping area is now a beautiful landscaped garden, which adds to the peace and tranquility of the place. There are lots of little extra touches throughout which reflect the care and attention to detail which is obviously so important to the owners. The rooms are spotless, the beds are inviting, and the showers are great.

The pool is beautiful and the restaurant/bar has a lovely atmosphere, especially in the evening. (I can highly recommend the pizzas). There is plenty of seating around the pool and even though it can get busy at the weekend with local visitors, it still has a very peaceful feel.

This has to be one of the quietest places to stay in Moshi and I would certainly favour it over any of the town center hotels, without any hesitation at all. I cannot speak highly enough of Honey Badger and will definitely be continuing my regular visits. Thanks again to Joey, Jenny and all the staff who make me feel so welcome.

I've been at Honey Badger just and only for two days.
The idea wa to take few days after the Safari and before getting back home, it's been worthwhile.
Relaxing at the lodge, going to Moshi during the day, good food and marvelous rooms, clean and really big.
I'd go back to the Honey Badger and I would definitely suggest to everyone.
They can organize tours, safari and trips to the Kilimajaro.
Really happy about it

I wish I had come here sooner! It is a restful haven and a great place to relax away from the hustle and bustle of Arusha and Moshi. My sister and her friend were visiting-they are both well travelled so we decided not to do the usual Zanzibar option. This was a great choice-the rooms, the pool, the service and the food is second to none. I would recommend Honey Badger to anyone needing a bit of R&R after volunteering or doing a safari or a climb. We also did a great day trip to Lake Challa from here. Jenny and Joey are doing a wonderful job helping the local villagers and at the same time are keeping it all environmentally friendly. The solar energy was very consistent and we were able to keep our devices charged on mains power. The wireless connection was great around the pool and restaurant area. Thank you all for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: The rooms are all great-some people comment on the noise from the chickens and the dogs but hey TIA...

We stayed for two nights, the lodge has large compound, rooms are big enough, they have a nice and clean swimming pool, charming service staff.
More importantly for those night-riders (like us) who will plan to spend a night life at Moshi town you may return at any time (late hours) and there will be staff to open for you and handle the keys.

We had a good time!!

Room Tip: Just pay a visit if possible to get a desired room!

We stayed in Honeybadger for 4 days after we finished hiking up Kili. We coulnd't have chosen a better place. It was a great, relaxed and friendly place, ideal to spend a few days, enjoying a few cold beers and lounging by the pool. Great swimming pool by the way! - not like other hotels we visited where the pool turned out to be some green pond-like hole in the ground, this way a clean, hygienic pool. Had a great on-site massage (soooo good after five days of hiking), which was lovely. Food was delicious. Highly recommended.
