I stayed at Bob's twice during my trip to Africa - for one night each on the first and last night of my trip.

Lovely property with comfortable beds, clean baths and a coke machine with beer in it. Gotta love that. Very helpful for arranging travel to city and sightseeing. Wifi was top notch which, as a business traveler, is most important.

Seriously, Jo Burg is a rough city as you can see high fences and barb wire everywhere. Maura makes you feel safe and is super informative with tours and rides (I highly recommend Jarbu).

“Pros and Cons of the two bunk rooms we know of: Ours was closest to the bathrooms, which is convenient, but, also means that the people in the other bunk room have to walk through your bunk room to access the bathrooms and showers. Choose accordingly. I believe Bob also offers a more private, upscale guesthouse (on the other side of the pool) but, I'm sure the price is higher. Most people observe the "quiet after 11:00 p.m" kind of rule -- not that it was written anywhere.”
