I stayed here for two nights after climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. Honey Badger is very relaxing, with beautiful gardens and lovely pool and bar area. The rooms are clean and comfortable with lovely, tasteful African touches. The staff is outstanding - they are all very friendly, helpful and dedicated to making the guest's stay a memorable one. They know each guest... More

We stayed two nights here. It was a great price and had everything we wanted. Wifi, nice pool area, friendly staff and good food. The breakfast was delicious. The most surprising(and best) thing was that the pizza was incredible. After six days on Kilimanjaro, it was exactly what we needed. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a place... More

The accommodation was arranged for us by our guide (Arnold, at Nyange Adventures) but we'd have struggled to find much better. A wonderful secluded location, serviceable rooms. Good showers (of vital importance after five nights on the mountain armed with little but wet wipes). Very helpful staff. Good food. Welcoming and accommodating owners. Well stocked bar. Some really beautiful spaces.... More

My husband and I spent one night at Honey Badger after a one day hike on Kilimanjaro. It was a wonderful place to unwind after the hike! We stayed in a triple (the only availability) and it was great to have so much room and a big king size bed! The room was very clean and nicely decorated to reflect... More

On Nyerere Day, my car broke down just near the sign post for this lodge. As happens here, we soon found help from people at the roadside, and the mechanic from Honey Badger, Yusuf(?) came to fix our car. He and three workmates took four hours by the side of the road to replace our timing belt - a miracle.... More

Have stayed at several hotels in Moshi, but this is one Of the best! Good location, spacious rooms, big beds. Are very keen about the environment and have a lot of sun panels, which are unusual. Friendly, caring staff! Nice breakfast. Nice swimming pool!

We had the pleasure of experiencing this lovely eco-friendly lodge for 4 nights recently. It is situated a short distance out of Moshi town but taxis can be arranged from the hotel. The rooms were very spacious and it was good to have a safe in the room. Hot showers and solar powered electricity were good. We ate there most... More
