The Xhosa reside in Western and Eastern part of Cape, South Africa; a minimal portion of the Xhosa live in Zimbabwe. The official language spoken by the Xhosa is known as IsiXhosa, also recognized to be a national language.

The Xhosa have been divided into other tribes, some of which are the ImiDushane, AmaGcaleka, and AmaNdlambe.
