The Lendu languages of the Central Sudanic language family are a cluster of closely related languages spoken in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and slightly over the border into Uganda.

The languages are Lendu (Balendru), with over a million speakers, and the smaller Ngiti, as well as perhaps an additional language or two.
