The Ndebele are a group native to South Africa who speak isiNdebele language. AmaNdebele mainly inhabit the provinces of Mpumalanga, Gauteng and Limpopo, all of which are in the northeast of the country.

The history of the Ndebele people begin with the Bantu Migrations southwards from the Great Lakes region of East Africa.

Bantu speaking peoples moved across the Limpopo river into modern-day South Africa and over time assimilated and conquered the indigenous San people in the North Eastern regions of South Africa.

At the time of the collapse of the Kingdom of Zimbabwe in 1450, Two main groups had emerged south of the Limpopo River.

The Nguni, who occupied the eastern coastal plains, and the Sotho–Tswana, who lived on the interior plateau.

Between the 1400s and early 1800s saw these two groups split into smaller distinct cultures and people. The Ndebele were just such a people.
