Welcome to Jambo Guest House!

When visiting Cape Town, consider a luxurious yet affordable Cape Town Bed and Breakfast accommodation, in an exclusive guest house offering sincere and friendly hospitality.

Cape Town is one of the most visited locations in the world. With a unique blend of diverse cultures, incomparable natural landscapes and a cosmopolitan city life, there is an endless host of experiences awaiting the seeking traveller. It is also an amazing place to live in. According to the British Sunday Telegraph it was listed as one of the places you have to visit before you die. More recently, Table Mountain was named as one of the “New 7 Wonders of the World”.

“Jambo” (which means “Hello” in Swahili) is a guest house in Green Point, Cape Town, offering luxury bed and breakfast accommodation.

Jambo is centrally situated and the whole area around us is safe to walk, at any time of day or night. The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is a 10 minute walk. The Hop-on Hop-off Bus Station is very close and we highly recommend both routes. The Urban Park and the Seafront Promenade, where one can walk or jog, are nearby. Both the park and the promenade have exercise equipment areas. A string of excellent restaurants are within a few minutes walk. Virgin Active Health Club and Gymnasium is across the road. The City Centre is half an hour walk, or a 4 minute ride away with many places of interest to visit. The African Market is across the street from us on Sundays. The Metropolitan Golf Course is a kilometer away.

Owned and managed by Barry and Mina – the loving couple has established a unique, home-setting guest house that is second to none.
