Good Afternoon Aslam.
There is this map showing the distribution of the Khoi and San peoples in
the Cape during the early stages of colonization and exploration
A very interesting 'What if' map can be found here
Showing what Africa may've looked like had colonization by European
countries not occurred, but it is speculative as Islamic colonization and
indigenous colonization would alter this map quite considerably.
