The San people were the first settlers; the Khoikhoi and Bantu-
speaking tribes followed. The Dutch East India Company landed the first
European settlers on the Cape of Good Hope in 1652, launching a colony
that by the end of the 18th century numbered only about 15,000. Known

the settlers as early as 1795 tried to establish an independent republic.
