Wikimedia Suid-Afrika is 'n Wikimedia afdeling vir die Republiek van Suid-Afrika. Dit is geïnkorporeer as 'n nie-winsgewende organisasie kragtens Suid-Afrikaanse wetgewing. Dit is plaaslik op 25 Februarie 2012 gestig nadat dit op 26 Maart 2011 as 'n afdeling deur die Wikimedia-stigting goedgekeur is. Hierdie afdeling poog om plaaslike bewustheid van die projekte en hul behoorlike akademiese gebruik te bevorder, vertalingspogings in plaaslike tale aan te moedig en die skepping van plaaslike gratis kennis en media te ondersteun.
