Lusikisiki is a town in Ngquza Hill Local Municipality in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa.

This village is 45 km north of Port St Johns in East Pondoland. It developed from a military camp established in 1894, was surveyed in 1902 and administered by a village management board since 1932. The name is onomatopoeic, derived from the rustling sound of reeds in the wind.[2]
