The Dutch arrived in 1652.
Captain Cook landed in Table Bay on 30-Oct-1772, where he remained to careen his ship ‘Resolution’ for a considerable time, his log entry on departure was ‘a green & verdant land totally uninhabited by man’
Subsequent voyages did in fact encounter a sparse population of Boesman, the dimintive stone age peoples of the Kalahari.
The blacks arrived in numbers in the 1770s mostly as a population expanision from the South East & were in the main Southern Swazis, it was they who spread as Zulus who formed as a major tribal group as a result of U Shaka son of Nandi raiding his father, Senzenakonna’s kraal, the expansion of the newly emerging Zulu tribe under Shaka dispaced other groupings to form the Botswanan, Xhosa & other peoples.
Port Natal was first settled in 1824 & later under the Governorship of Benjamin D’Urban it was renamed Durban in 1835 and the first Bantu peoples were met just North of the Tugella River shortly afterwards – these were the Southern Swaziy then under thje control of Dinganne U Shaka’ much younger brother.
The era of the Zulu Wars effectively culminated at Isandlwana when under Cetshwayo, who became king of the Zulus in 1872, by 1878 he had built & trained a warrior class of between 40 & 60,000 Zulus & in January 1879 provoked by British policy & their military invasion confronted the British army at Isandlwana and later that day a second Zulu force, led by Cetshwayo’s brother, Dabulamanzi attacked the British field station at Rorke’s Drift, known to the Zulu as KwaJimu.
The heavy defeat of the British in these two battles led to many changes in South Africa..
Thus it is clear South Africa was NEVER in fact a black land. The indigenous Khoisan people were Eurasian.
