Origin: 
Sanga cattle were introduced into southern Africa when the Khoikhoi (Hottentots) first crossed the Zambezi river about 700AD with their Sanga cattle. Several waves of the Bantu people with various strains of Sanga cattle entered the region and settled. The Humbi appear to have developed out of these early populations. They are small Sanga cattle in Angola (Felius, 1995).
