Tucked away in the heart of the Garden Route - Here at Jembjo's we take pride in making you feel at home. As owner/operators we have a wealth of knowledge in travel & tourism in Africa, so we know how important a friendly face & a comfortable atmosphere are...

In our opinion, there is no better place to experience this than in Knysna.... Simply a little bit of paradise that is South Africa's best kept secret & is listed in the 'top 100 places in the world to visit'...

Located Near

Jembjo's is ideally situated, we are a 2 minute walk from the Knysna 'Waterfront', the town, the bus station & the local taxi buses. So park the car up in our secure parking area & go walkabout! Wander down to one of the Waterfront's many bars & restaurants for sundowners over the lagoon or catch a 'tuc-tuc' ride up to the Heads for the most stunning scenery.
Take a hike through the Pledge nature reserve or simply 'shop til you drop' in one of Knysna's 3 shopping mall
