Athletes and spectators alike will find that the accommodation at Lalapanzi is convenient for major sporting events such as the Iron Man SA and all the many other events staged along the beachfront, the university and the famous Humewood links golf course. (The name Lalapanzi is derived from the Xhosa language where "lala" means "sleep, lie or rest" and "panzi" means down.)
