JamboHouse is ideally located to explore the historic Old Town of Lamu which is UNESCO World Heritage Site since the year 2001. From there it's just a three minute walk through narrow lanes to the main square (Mkunguni) where locals meet. There you also find the traditional Lamu Fort. A few meters further you reach Seafront with restaurants and cafés.

From JamboHouse you easily reach small shops, internet cafés, banks with international ATM's, offices of airlines and bus companies and also museums. To reach a 13 km (8 miles) deserted beach with dunes you have two options: you could have a leisurely walk along the seafront (approximately 40 minutes) or you could take a small boat to get there in around 20 minutes. We recommend to cover at least one distance by boat because from the boat you get a different and another interesting view of Lamu Town.
