Lungi is the abbreviation of Nomalungelo, which means "rights" in the Xhosa language. Lungi’s is a friendly ran B&B, where you will feel immediately at ease and it offers you the unique experience of family life and culture in a South African Township. Gladys, your hostess, opened the B&B after working multiple years in a hotel at Greenpoint. She runs the accommodation in a welcoming and proud way.

Lungi’s B&B is situated in the northern part of Khayelitsha, where you have a beautiful view of the Helderberg Mountains. The accommodation was fully redecorated in 2009.

Khayelitsha (which means "new home" in Xhosa) is a rapidly growing township located outside of Cape Town, near the Cape Town International Airport. The population now numbers almost 2 million people. Khayelitsha, which was created during the 'apartheid' area as a dormitory area for black labourers working in Cape Town, is now a vibrant community with schools, churches, markets, training centers, craft displays and community gardens.
