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

We had a nice stay here. Our friends were staying at a super fancy place up the beach, and it was nice to be able to stay somewhere a lot cheaper but close to them. The beach is gorgeous, so is the view, and the lounge area is great. We would stay here again.

Baby Bush is so great. Breakfast was ready for us every morning, its free and it was delicious. The guys took care of us every minute and they cleaned our room everyday with a smile. Selma, the house keeper left us flowers on the bed that spelled a new message every day. Its right off the beach and beautiful. One... More
