How to use "South african dutch" in context?
There are about 1.5 million people of Dutch ancestry in South Africa. Most of these people live in the Cape Town metropolitan area, and smaller numbers can also be found in Durban, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Port Elizabeth, and Bloemfontein.
Dutch settlers began arriving in South Africa in the late 1600s, when the Dutch East India Company established a trading post at the Cape of Good Hope. Over the next century or so, the Dutch community grew steadily, as Dutch traders and settlers married local women and started families.
