What two objects/resources did the Europeans have that the Africans didn't? Start watching around 10 minutes in.

I wasn't sure where to find the following: Which other two agents of European conquest did the Dutch settlers possess as they moved further north in Africa?

I'm not sure where to find which geographic features did people from the middle latitudes enjoy that people in the low latitudes could not enjoy due to their location. Also which were two things that allowed the Europeans to establish a foothold in Southern Africa. And was there really three big problems they encountered in the Tropic Of Capricorn because I didn't get them.

The first two questions can be found in the early part of the video when the Dutch settled in South Africa. Your third question is later in the video when the Europeans crossed into the Tropics and began getting sick. After searching those parts of the video, if you cannot find answers, email me.
