An excerpt from the article 34 facts about Republic of South Africa

They came here in the 1st century BC. In the 1st century AD, the Khoikhoi arrived here, and from the 9th century, Bantu tribes (ethnic groups from the steppes of central and southern Africa) arrived here. The first Europeans appeared there in the 15th century, and colonization began in the 17th century, when Dutch peasants, known in Europe as Boers, began to arrive there, followed by German Protestants and French Huguenots. From the beginning, whites separated themselves from Africans. At the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries, the colony established by the Dutch in the Cape of Good Hope was taken over by the British, who began British settlement there.
