Jambo House is another piece of adventure altogether. My wife and I spent our first honeymoon week at the guest house and I must say we received a 5-star treatment. Arnold I guess as everyone has already said is a wonderful host and the small team of Adam and Miriam made our life comfortable and undisturbed!
We had the upper room and it was less noisy, the alley ways to the guest house made our visit unique and my wife took lots of photos along the alleys. Arnold was very helpful with the excursion preparations. We took the donkey ride to Shela beach and the dhow trip to Manda Toto! Everyone should try the dhow trip it was awesome and Arnold gave correct info on the best and trustworthy captains for both. We actually did our own fishing!!
We had a great time and for the budget traveller, there is no better place for a stopover than Jambo House. Arnold is a passionate traveller/adventurer and would help your stay be better in Lamu. We look forward to a second visit to sample what we could not, and also enjoy the discounts!
