I had an all round wonderful experience staying in Jambo house during my five day visit to Lamu. The guest house which is located in the heart of Lamu offers secure, clean, and comfortable accommodation plus a very hearty breakfast....great value for the budget traveler.
Arnold and his team were very hospitable. Arnold with his great knowledge of Lamu gave great options on things to do in Lamu. I never once felt bored while i was there in large part due to the vast information he gave about the town. The boat trip I took to Manda Island and Takwa ruins, which was one of many excursions that Arnold arranges for his guests, was the highlight of my trip to Lamu. I cannot rave enough on how great this was. Damaris and Adam, who work at Jambo house have to be applauded as well for the how they consistently did their best to ensure that visitors at the guest house were comfortable. They never tired in answering all the questions I asked them on a daily basis regarding the town.
My stay at Jambo House exceeded my expectation and I would glady recommend it to those seeking to experience Lamu on a budget but without compromising on comfort.More
