Inkandla Bush. Does anyone know where this is, in conjunction with the first invasion. How far from RD and Isandlwana?

Was it ever established, as fact that the Zulus were in this area possibly moving towards Isandlwana ect. Chelmsford in a letter to Frere states he does not believe they were there?

LH, who told him they were there in the first place? 

Was this anything to do with the letter reprimanding Durnford, for listening to that bishop!

Its not a logical route from Ondini to Isandlwana. It would involve a massive detour heading South West first. If there was an impi there its more than likely it was heading towards the middle drift.
Considering the lack of solid intelligence surrounding the whole invasion I cant see where the knowledge of an impi in the Nkandla area would originate

Cheers
