About Us

The Baobab is an accommodation provider in Cape Town, South Africa.

We specialise in student and intern accommodation thorough the year. We operate in Mowbray and Observatory - two suburbs noted for its large student population.

We provide comfortable, affordable and high quality accommodation that is ideally located, close to the public transport network (walking distance to the train station and taxis), and to the humming nightlife that characterises the area.  Whether you need transport, internet access, groceries, take-out food, pubs, restaurants – it’s all a short walk away.

We are a proudly African focused company with the majority of our tenants coming from the across the 9 provinces of South Africa and various countries across Africa (Namibia, Zambia.Tanzania, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Kenya, DRC,Congo, Angola, Tunisia, Mauritius ,Mozambique, Egypt, etc.). While we do do have tenants from across the world - we have had tenants from the UK, Germany, Spain, Brazil, Argentina, Korea, India, UK, etc. - the majority are African.

The Baobab, also known as the “Tree of Life”, is a symbol of strength, resilience and comfort. It is a source of food, water and shelter in the African Savannah regions.

We hope that this is what The Baobab Student Accommodation will represent to the people who live in our various buildings.
