Thaba Nchu
Thaba Nchu. The word "thaba" means mountain, and "nchu" is black. Notice the mountain in the background - that is the Black Mountain this area was called after by the native Barolong. The name was probably given because of dark storm clouds gathering over the mountain before one of the frequent thunder storms.
