Langa, located in the Western Cape of South Africa, has emerged as a popular tourist destination in recent years. The success of its tourism industry can be attributed to various factors, including community workshops, government programs, and the involvement of local businesses and residents.

Local Business: The Langa Quarter

The Langa Quarter is an innovative development that has transformed a previously neglected area into a thriving cultural and tourism hub. The development offers a variety of shops and eateries, a community center, and a backpackers’ hostel. It was created with the input of local residents and aims to showcase the area’s unique cultural heritage, including music, dance, and art.

Other Local Businesses

Apart from the Langa Quarter, other local businesses are also taking advantage of the growing tourism industry. The Guga S’thebe Arts and Culture Centre hosts regular events and exhibitions, showcasing the talents of local artists and musicians. The Lelapa Fund provides financial and business support to small tourism enterprises in the townships, helping them to grow and flourish.


Despite the success and growth of Langa’s tourism industry, there are still challenges that need to be addressed. The lack of infrastructure and facilities, such as public transport and public toilets, is a major concern. Additionally, crime and safety concerns can deter visitors and harm the reputation of the area.

The involvement of local businesses and residents, along with the support of community workshops and government programs, has contributed to the success of Langa’s tourism industry. The ultimate goal is to create a sustainable and inclusive tourism industry that benefits all members of the community. Continued investment in infrastructure and facilities, along with addressing safety concerns, can ensure the growth and success of Langa’s tourism industry.
