Built at the turn of the century and nestling in a quiet cul-de-sac at the foot of Signal Hill in Green Point. This amazing Guest House is set in a sub-tropical walled garden in the heart of urban Cape Town. Jambo is centrally located and a safe 15 minute walk to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront; while Green Point’s excellent trendy restaurants are only 5 minutes away. The city centre is 4 minutes drive.

Our hosts were very welcoming even though we had to change our arrival time at very short notice. Our room was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable and we had a splendid spread of food for breakfast.
