I don’t know why I took so long to check again if there is an Afrikaans version of Wordle.
There has been one since February, actually— created by South African software developer Francois Botha.
It is called Wortel.
originally from Dutch wortel,
from Middle Dutch wortele,
from Old Dutch *wurtala,
from Proto-Germanic *wurt– “root” + *waluz “stick”).
Here’s my first attempt. I can post the solution since it’s now past midnight in South Africa.
TREIN – train
ASIEL – asylum
GELEI – conduct (electricity)
GLOEI – glow
