Eastern Border Afrikaans

Eastern Border Afrikaans has its roots in the farming community that moved further and further from the Cape.

A large number of residents in the Cape were Dutch speaking and they made up part of the farmers that moved away from the Cape.  At the end of the 18th century this group settled on the East Border and they lived a very secluded life and spoke their own type of Afrikaans until well into the 19th century.
