South Africa is the African country that occupies the most southern part of Africa. It is bordered by Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe and it surrounds the small Kingdom of Lesotho. South Africa has a coastline on both the South Atlantic Ocean in west and the Indian Ocean in east.
The Bantu Probably around the third century AD, Bantu people gradually began to settle along the eastern coastline of Southern Africa (modern Natal). In appearance these peoples are much larger and darker than the Khoe. The name Khoekhoe means 'men of men'. They spread out across Southern Africa, and migrating south 2,000 years ago brought pastoralism (animal herding) to the Cape. Coloured People The largest group of people living in Cape Town today are known as the 'coloured' community. The term refers to people of mixed racial origin.
Human environment interaction refers to the ways people change their environment and how the environment changes them. Human environment interaction is one of the five themes of geography created by the National Council for Geographic Education and the Association of American Geographers in 1984.

The demographics of South Africa encompasses about 56 million people of diverse origins, cultures, languages, and religions. The last census was held in 2011 and the next will be taken anywhere from 2016–2021. Since the election of 27 April 1994, South Africa has been divided into nine provinces. They vary widely in population density, from the highly urbanized Gauteng with nearly 700 people per square kilometre, to the mostly-desert Northern Cape with less than four people per square kilometre.
South Africa is situated at the southern tip of the continent of Africa. Ranging from west to east across its northern border are the neighboring countries of Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe; Mozambique lies to the east, as does the small nation of Swaziland, which is nearly encircled by South Africa. Another small nation, Lesotho, lies entirely within the borders of South Africa, in the east central region. Total land borders measure 4,750 kilometers (2,952 miles). South Africa has a coastline of 2,954 kilometers (1,836 miles), with the cold Atlantic Ocean on the west coast and the Indian Ocean on the east coast.
Geographic theme of movement- Human have impact every area of the earth, but in varying ways. The geography of places is influenced by the degree to which humans have impacted their local environment. Movement: Humans Interacting on the Earth. The postmodern world is one of great interaction between places.

Black lives don’t matter in xenophobic South Africa Last week was an ugly, humiliating one for South Africa; a country once considered a jewel of democracy on the African continent has been gripped by a wave of xenophobic violence. In a matter of days, more than 30 stores belonging to foreign nationals were shut down after intense attacks and looting by locals in several townships. We are breathing a sigh of relief that there has been no loss of life.
Cape Town - A senior Cape Town traffic officer on Thursday testified that he was left humiliated after Western Cape ANC Youth League spokesperson Siyabulela Tom insulted and assaulted him at a roadblock in 2016.
"I felt hurt. I am in charge of 10 members of the roadblock unit and, as supervisor, I felt humiliated," Jeremy Minnie told prosecutor Marissa Behari in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Thursday.
He was speaking after Tom, out on a warning, pleaded not guilty to assault and two counts of crimen injuria.
On Monday afternoon, locals flocked to the shaft. They stood near the shaft, watching and waiting for any news. Some sang gospel songs, while others drank beer.
The boy fell into the hole sometime between 12:00 and 13:00 on Saturday.
Rescue South Africa helped with the operation, but the rescue was called off later that day due to the unstable ground.
The boy's family had said they last saw him when he was going to play with friends, Khoza said.
"When we went to his mother, she said he went out to play. One of his friends told us that he fell into the shaft."
