The Baobab aims to raise the bar with respect to student accommodation in Cape Town with the objective of helping our students lead safe, happy, healthy lifestyles that ultimately encourage successful learning.
Cape Town is a highly desirable place to study in and intern in. However the various academic institutions and colleges have nowhere near enough accommodation for all of the students who need t. This means that there is a huge demand for student and intern accommodation in Cape Town – especially in areas like Mowbray and Observatory which are central to most institutions and public transport.
Unfortunately we have noticed that a lot of the student accommodation on offer is poorly maintained and ill-equipped, while still being priced relatively high.
Motivated by these sad living conditions, The Baobab has created desirable student accommodation in Mowbray and Observatory - the heart of Cape Town’s student area.
We first bought a large, multi-storey building on the Observatory/ Salt River border, completely renovated it and turned it into neat, comfortable, well functioning, safe havens for students at affordable prices. Our next project was a large student house in Mowbray. Since then, our portfolio has expanded to encompass other properties.
