Special Report – Liziwe’s Guest House in Gugulethu

Send to Kindle


Liziwe Ngcokoto is the owner of Liziwe’s Guest House. Long before the establishment of the Guest House, Liziwe bought the plot of land and lived in a shack on the plot for five years. Then she and her husband, Donald, decided to build a house. Together they worked tirelessly towards building their dream home. Once completed, the couple decided to extend their home into a welcoming Guest House.

My husband and I have come a long way, from staying in a shack on the plot and receiving a donation of bricks from Sappi Craft where my husband has been working for 25 years. He would come home at night and clean bricks, and today that has paid off. We have beautiful walls and a home that we decided to turn into a Guest house, This has been a thrilling and exciting journey for us …” says Liziwe.

This remarkable, business minded women, now owns and manages a beautiful Guest House that is well recognized, both nationally and internationally. Liziwe has also established a restaurant at her guest house for both the local and international market to come and savour the taste of traditional African cuisine and ambience. The restaurant caters for fifty people and has been exceptionally well received.



A very gracious hostess and host… all of the family members were very friendly and conversation came easily. We enjoyed hearing of Liziwe’s and Donald’s climb from a shack to their pesent Guest House. Their success is a strong tribute to their inner strength” … From the Guest Book at Liziwe’s Guest House (Ruth T, Virginia, USA – 8 October 2006).

Liziwe’s Guest House extends a warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere to all it’s visitors, both locals and vistitors from abroad. If you have not been to Gugulethu in Cape Town, why not visit Liziwe’s Guest House, and experience township life in South Africa.
