Bhaca (Baca) is a Bantu language of South Africa.[2] Traditionally considered a dialect of Swati, it is closer to Zulu, Phuthi and Xhosa.[3][4] It is spoken southeast of Lesotho, where Sotho, Xhosa and Zulu meet, mainly around Mount Frere, Mzimkhulu, and to a lesser extent in Mount Ayliff, Matatiele, Harding, Bulwer, Underberg, Highflats, Umzinto, Umzumbe and Ixopo.
