Experience the township from the inside-out by visiting Lungi's B&B which is owned by Nomalungelo, also known as Lungi, and her family.
Feel welcome as a part of the family and community in a homestay B&B in Makhaza, a quiet family area in the Northern part of Khayelitsha. You will experience real township life from a shack house with all the luxury of a 3-star B&B, that’s what we call “Shack Chic”.
Don’t forget to ‘Meet the street’ and be fascinated by the peoples' stories while being in the convenient environment of Lungi’s Township B&B. Be surprised by the neighbourhood’s unexpected creativity and entrepreneurship as well as the welcoming smiles.
Stayed here with my 14-year-old son on last night of Cape Town visit on our way to Little Karoo.
He felt very at home and we loved the township tour to see Golden The Flower Man who made a daisy for Jonathan out of discarded coke cans – he’s quite an artist so don’t miss.
As for the accommodation, we had the Red Room with en suite. We stayed in quite a range of guest houses and B&B’s and private homes during our hols in SA and I can honestly say that Gladys’ bathroom was the most beautifully designed and best functioning of them all! (Thanks to her plumber husband, no doubt)
We wanted to stay with the real people of South Africa, and it was such a good decision.
We chose Nomalungelos guesthouse LUNGIs in Khayelitsha, and it was a wonderful experience, that we can only recommend to others.
The atmosphere of the place was so friendly and warm, and Noma and her family went out of their way to make our stay comfortable.
The rooms were lovely and clean and we enjoyed a great breakfast every morning.
The township welcomed us. People were so friendly and we enjoyed the colourfull houses and people.
We want to come back! To others: Go and enjoy this wonderful part of South Africa!
In a unique environment we enjoyed the company of Gladys in the middle of the township Khayelitsha. The B&B is really clean and modern, with new facilities. We enjoyed to tour very much, we spoke with a medicine women (Sangoma), visited a school, saw a craftsman making flowers from tin cans and tasted the local beer. Never have i felt unsafe. So thanks for the great experience. Will visit and stay again for sure.
