The Watering Hole Chat Site - Monday 8 December, 2008

Remember to post which site you are referring to, NK for Nkorho, EP for Elephant Plains.

By the way, Cerinthe has started a new thread,here where people can sign up to start a "New Day".  If you would like to try it, but aren't quite sure how, talk to Barry or RogerH.

Zebra                          Stripes from Yesterday. Thx. to Fani

     

 

And while I have your attention, if you haven't already checked out this thread concerning what the folks at Nkorho Lodge are doing for the kids at the Gottenberg Nursery School, please do!  We need your help!

 Happy camming.

Tourneyman, do you know if there are separate tribal languages in South Africa and one trade language?  In the Congo there were many languages. One for each individual tribe. But, for communication purposes, there were only a few trade languages that most everyone understood like Bangala and Kiswahili (That sort of became Swahili I think.)

I did a quick search and saw one link that said there was something like 11 different languages for So. Africa.  Shangaan which I thought was a language seems to be a tribe and is what they call a lion.  Maybe someone from the area an answer better on the languages of the local area or you can do a search for South Africa + language and see what you want to know about it.

Is "Ngala" a lion?  In what language?

In the Congo the word for lion was Simba

yes it is lion in the local language.. shangahan or something like that .. sure someone will give the correct spelling of the language.  Gnu is another name for what they call Wildebeast there.
