Did you know that many place names like Tsitsikamma, Kamdeboo, Gamtoos, Kariega, Karoo, Leeugamka Goudini, Prieska are from the KHOIKHOI GOWAS or language?

Many SA words like dagga, kwagga, komma, kamma, aba, aitsa, nai are from KHOIKHOI, A First language of South Africa.

KHOIKHOI is the language that greeted everyone to this land, the language of Krotoa, Sarah Baartman and Dawid Stuurman, a language we've almost forgotten and yet she has been with us all this time.
