Lenasia South is the southern part of Lenasia, which was founded in 1958 as an Indian township. The name Lenasia is possibly an amalgamation of the words Lenz and Asia. Lenz possibly originates from a Captain Lenz who owned the original piece of land on which Lenasia is located. (GPS coordinates: 26.3967 S, 27.8642 E).
