I'm little bit confused on how to review this place. From one side it has good location (not in the front row, but just in 2nd row) and easy access to nearby sandbank (which is amazing). It has some amazing lodge, good for relaxing and chilling, and that has a lot of potential. Hotel personel is helpfull and there is... More

I stayed at baby bush for three days and it's like staying in a tree house which is a great way to forget about the hustle and bustle of everyday life and relax. The room we stayed in was quite high and the stairs are steep so you need to be mindful of this with luggage. The room was also... More

Travelled solo and staid here for 11 wonderful days in the Honymoon suite. The view from the private balcony is to kill for and worth the extra money ! The lodge is very basic but with an authentic down to earth feel about it. I only ate Seafood and it was very good every time! Decent Wi-Fi in the lounge... More

Situated about 50m back from the shore at high tide, with a settlement of shacks and living accommodation for locals in this space. It is very basic but has all the essentials if your intent is to completely chill out. The guys running it are helpful and treat you daily to their choice of music which is good if you... More

My stay at Babybush was fantastic because of the fabulous Mel, Jonty and Teacher who were managing the place during my stay. For the 5 days I ended up staying it was like a home from home. It is very peaceful and the perfect place for some chill out time. There are some super comfortable mattress chairs around a veranda... More

Baby bush Lodge is the place to be if you like to have a relaxed time. The view is absolutely wonderfull, in a local fisherman's village, 2 steps away from Kiwengwa Beach. The staff is really helpfull and helped me out to book some excursions (Stown Town - Prison Island, spice tour, snorkling at Nemba Atoll.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here with a group of friends over the new year. So fun and they were very attentive/open to feedback. Safety conscious and fun loving crew. It's great that they can help you set up tours as well right from reception. Thanks so much!

I visited this place for 5 days in January 2015. Baby Bush is a nice budget hotel, intriguing by the look and with breath-taking views of the ocean, adjacent to a long and sandy beach. Baby Bush was just what I needed after hardships of Kilimanjaro and dusts of Serengeti: a quiet and inexpensive hotel with a little bit of... More
