South African hookah

 

South Africa is another place in the world where Hookah smoking is popular. In South Africa, though, the Hookah smoke can be refered to instead as the Okka Pipe.

According to Wikipedia.com the Oka smoking is most popular with the South asian (Indian) residents of South Africa the Cape mallay populations.  here is a link to the Places in South Africa to eat at and smoke at if you go http://www.ruba.com/guide/Restaurants_in_South_Delhi_South_East_Delhi_New_Delhi_-RubaExpert

But the European-African population of South Africa are taking up the Okka (hookah)smoking with more popularity. Like in the United States with its Hookah smoking, South Africa Okkah smoking has seen more Okkah or Hookah smoke bars popping up around the nation.

Okka smoken in South Africa is done mostly in public like the beaches and Parks. But many believe that the okka smoke bars have a real market in South Africa as it grows in popularity.

Many social historians look at the South African Dagga Pipe and believe that hookah smoking, like humanity originated in Africa.

In South Africa, the terminology of the various hookah components also differ from other countries. The clay “head/bowl” is known as a “clay pot”. The hoses are called “pipes” and the air release valve is known, strangely, as a “clutch”.

Some scientists point to the dagga pipe as an African origin of hookah
