South Africa – Dutch Colonization

South Africa

In the ~17th century, South Africa was a Dutch colony. It was quite a short period in the history of South Africa.
However, it’s not forgotten from at least two main reasons:
-Many places in South Africa have names of Dutch origin.
-One of the official languages of South Africa (called Afrikaans) was derived from Dutch (more about it on 11th of July 2017).
