About Lungile Backpackers

Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth), also known as the Friendly City is the entry to the Sunshine Coast on the east and a gateway to the Garden Route to the west and the semi arid Karoo to the north. The city's proximity to the Addo Elephant National Park and various other Big 5 game reserves, its pristine beaches, the graphic displays of recent and ancient history in the midst of the local culture makes for very memorable stay and a great base to explore the surrounding area.

Explore Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth) – aka the Windy City, Ibhayi (‘the bay’ in isiXhosa) or the Friendly City as it is affectionately known by locals. This coastal hub in the Eastern Cape has many hidden treasures and some amazing history.
