Why exactly did the Bantus conquer the Khoi before others?

You had much earlier civilizations in Horn Africa, Egypt, the Levant, even parts of Europe like Greece that were practicing farming and could have had a massive expansion into East and Southern Africa. 

Although none of those civilizations did, it was the Bantus who displaced them first. Why was this? Their weapons weren't any better than the groups I just listed, they didn't have many domestic animals.ALSO, many will say that it's because of disease but this doesn't make sense either. Horn Africans and even some Middle Easterners were just as exposed to things like malaria. Also, Khoi themselves were part Eurasian as you had previous expansions where they intermixed, but didn't displace them.
