We visited the honey badger from the 8th to 14th July which included doing a 4 day safari with them. Literally the best experience ever! Safari was incredible and our tour guide Cornell gave the best advice and information! Our cook for safari iddy was amazing as well! Made the a delicious 3 course meal every night on our safari!...

The perfect place to unwind and/or explore. Great pool and lounge area surrounded by verdant planting. Delicious food and cocktails. Tailor made trips and just the friendliest place possible. A real taste of African hospitality - I look forward to visiting again and a big thank you to Jenny, Joey and all the team.

We had a fantastic experience on Safari to Serengeti and Ngorongoro with our guides Cornell and Boca the weekend of 7/5/14. It started with a couple hours the first day at Lake Manyara, with the highlight seeing many elephants up close. Then we drove on to the Serengeti, stopping at Oldupai Gorge and a Massai village on the way. Cornell... More

I would have marked the HBL excellent except for we had a big problem with the laundry service. We were unsure it could be done by next day check-out but the staff convinced us it would be ready in time. I managed to do the same amount of hand washing and it dried in the sun in an hour so... More
