South Africa is a multi-ethnic nation and has diverse cultures and languages.
Major ethnic groups include the Zulu, Xhosa, Basotho (South Sotho), Bapedi (North Sotho), Venda, Tswana, Tsonga, Swazi and Ndebele, all of which predominantly speak South Bantu languages. The term “Bantu” means “people” and refers to the people speaking Bantu as opposed to one specific ethnic group. The remainder classify themselves as Khoisan.
