In 1836 an organized migration of 14,000 farmers (or Boers), known as the “Great Trek,” was under way north across the Orange River. As many as 14,000 Emigrant Farmers or Voortrekkers left Cape Town in a series of parties that founded several republics that violently collided with their African neighbors and amongst themselves. The emigrant boers North of the Vaal River developed their republic and adopted the name Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek (ZAR). This chapter discusses the Boer relations with the Africans on the periphery of the ZAR. It also highlights the Bapedi people, who went to war in 1876 with the Boers of the ZAR.
