The term Bantu refers to over 400 different ethnic groups in Africa, from Cameroon to South Africa, united by a common language family, the Bantu languages, and in many cases common customs.

Black South Africans were at times officially called "Bantus" by the apartheid regime.

"Somali Bantu" are the descendants of slaves from Bantu ethnic groups who were brought to Somalia in the 19th century from Tanzania, Mozambique and Malawi. (see also Category:Somali Bantu)
