About Langa

Welcome to Langa, one of the oldest townships in South Africa. The word Langa means ‘sun’ in isiXhosa. True to its name, Langa is a vibrant community filled with people who want to bring light. There are budding entrepreneurs, excellent sportsmen, cultural heritage sites and many world class homestays.

However, the community is also plagued by the effects of Apartheid:

Home to 52 402 people

Afflicted with gangs and violent crime

Predominantly stuck in the poverty cycle

Drug and alcohol abuse

High unemployment

High dwelling and settlement densities
