About
Description
Jambo Guest House is located in the middle of the Stone Town. Here the guests can experience the narrow streets and unique atmosphere of the historical city. All the main attractions, shops, old fort and More restaurants are within a walk distance. You will find us in the heart of Stone Town, opposite with the Green Garden Restaurant at Mkunazini Street. Better to make a phone call or send e-mail before you arrive Zanzibar in order to arrange a free transfer from the Airport or the Seaport. Less
