Determined to Succed

Honey badgers will catch large crocodiles & pythons as well as highly venomous cobras & the feared black mamba.

Nothing is safe from the Honey Badger wit! The honey badger is determined to success & is unafrid of larger-than-life-challenges.

Strong Willed

Honey Badgers are literally thick-skinned having some immunity to bee stings. She can easily enjoy her honey despite some angry bees.

The Honey Badger does not waste her time with negativity & thrives from constructive criticism & overcoming obstacles.

Resilient to Change

Honey Badgers do not have immunity to snake venom; however, many take a rest after being bitten & go on with their day.

The Honey Badger is surely resilient & not afraid to take repeated risks. Over a period of time this builds character & strength.

Highly Resourceful

The Honey Badger is rarely spotted at waterholes as most of her water requirements are derived from food, eggs, and melons.

The Honey Badger is highly resourceful & not only survives but thrives making use of what is at her disposal.

Your Dream. Our Mission.

What does the HB Stand For?

Honey Badger! That’s right, Africa’s most fearless animal despite it’s small size.
