The South African homeland policy and apartheid allowed the white minority to rule the country by separating the whites and blacks and limited the black people to access of public facilities. Other countries thought the apartheids were not right, so economic sanctions were put against South Africa by major trading partners, Europe and the US, and that caused the government of South Africa to change its policy of apartheid.
South Africa was successful in becoming an economic giant.

Zimbabwe is one of the countries in S. Africa.Zimbabwe is a complete tropical grassland and it's climate is mainly tropical wet and dry, and semiarid. Because of the climate their crop growth has decreased. Their major economic activities include commercial farming, nomadic herding, subsistence farming, and mainly livestock raising. The country of Zimbabwe was influenced by European Colonial Powers. Zimbabwe declared independence from Britain in April 18, 1980. After Zimbabwe's independence, Robert Mugabe became their president. Because whites owned most of the land, Mugabe decided to presume a policy of land redistribution.

Harare is the capital of Zimbabwe.

In most places environment can create a HUGE difference in most places. Those differences occur frequently in the countries of Angola and Zimbabwe. In Angola it harvests many natural resources that are key in Africa. In Zimbabwe the use of the Victoria Falls for hydro-electric power is a big help in hydroelectric power. It is one of the world's largest producers of it.

Mining in Southern Africa

How humans affect the environment of S. Africa
The poor mining practices South Africa have caused air pollution due to the toxic waste accumulated by the poor mining practices
Another way is that the cattle overeat vegetation which means there is little plant life left. Also over population in countries such Malawi causes there to be less wildlife because their habitats were destroyed.

The migration of the Bantu and Zulu impacted the countries of Southern Africa in several ways. One thing the migration of these people did was affect the culture of these countries by influencing things such as music. Also wars caused by the Zulu tribe have affected where the current borders of countries are today. Finally, the Bantu migration brought new crops and new methods of farming to Southern Africa.
