"Lungi's, What an incredible experience we had and all thanks to Gladys making us feel so welcome!

We approached Lungi's with an unusual request, to help us to hold a wedding in Khayelitsha inline with their cultures and traditions. Glady's was happy to help and got to with the planning. She arranged for the school dance club to come and dance for us, invited the neighbors to come and sing for us and approached the pastor to hold a ceremony for s all next door to her home in the local church.

We arrived in several cars, ran around all over the town taking pictures, held the wedding and then went back to Lungi's for food and to celebrate. We had an incredible day and cannot thank Glady's enough for her amazing hospitality. Her colourful home is so welcoming, the yellow room was my favourite and we claimed it for my dressing room. I would recommend for anyone visiting Cape Town to go and stay at Lungi's B&B. She is a plesaure to be around, everyone was so friendly and so happy to have us visit and to be a part of our wedding.

I feel that Glady's is doing something so important by opening her home to guests, she is giving you, the tourist the opportunity to become a traveller, to get off the path carved out for you and onto a new path. A path of being a responsible traveller, someone who starts to learn something about the country or place you are visiting. Take the opportunity to visit Gladys and help her create opportunities for herself, her family and her neighbors." - Lisa Gant
"We very much enjoyed staying at your place. The red room was beautiful and clean, the food delicious and the hospitality and company great. We will always remember when Asanele became a member of our little working office and watching a movie with Mikela. And I will remember the parking spot, so proud I got in and out. And the walkabout in the neighbourhood the next day showed what a peaceful and friendly place Khayelitsha also is. We have already recommended your place to others. Thanks Gladys for being who you are!" - Pernilla Luttropp and Mikela Lundahl
"Scrivo questa recensione in italiano perché ci è stato detto che siamo stati i primi italiani ad alloggiare da Lungi's, ma speriamo che molti altri connazionali decidano di fare questa esperienza interessantissima. La notte passata nella casa di Gladys con tutta la sua famiglia, e con un'altra simpatica coppia di turisti olandesi, è stata una delle esperienze più significative di tutto il nostro viaggio. Siamo arrivati con la nostra automobile verso sera, già l'ingresso nella township è un'esperienza, un'altro mondo rispetto alla Cape Town vista fino a quel momento, comunque senza mai avvertire nessuna sensazione di pericolo.

Raggiungiamo Lungi's B&B dopo avere chiamato Gladys perché ci siamo persi (un cartello segnaletico in più non guasterebbe!), parcheggiamo l'automobile nel cortile privato, tutta la famiglia ci accoglie e ci dà un caloroso benvenuto. La nostra stanza, quella rossa, e grande, pulita, con un il bagno privato ampio e pulito. C'è una grande cucina dove beviamo thè e caffè, e insieme a Gladys cuciniamo una cena succulenta. Passiamo una bellissima serata con tutta la famiglia di Gladys, le figlie sono molto carine, gentili, e simpaticissime!

La mattina seguente Gladys ci porta in tour nel quartiere, a conoscere i bimbi della scuola, il pub locale, il Flowerman; molto interessante sapere da Gladys come si vive nella township, l'organizzazione della società, la solidarietà fra gli abitanti, e anche i problemi dei due milioni (!!!) di abitanti di Khayelitsha.

Grazie mille a Gladys che ha reso la nostra visita indimenticabile!" - Marco
