Bhaca (Baca) is a minor Bantu language of South Africa. Traditionally considered a dialect of Xhosa, it is closer to Swazi and Phuthi. 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 and Ixopo.
