Isandlwana (also sometimes seen as Isandhlwana or Isandula; the dhl sound is similar to the Welch -ll-) is an isolated hill in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa, 8 miles southeast of Rorke's Drift (a ford of the Tugela River) and 105 miles north by northwest of Durban.

On January 22, 1879, Isandlwana was the site of the Battle of Isandlwana, where approximately 12,000 Zulu warriors defeated a contingent of British and Native troops in the first engagement of the Anglo-Zulu War. The battle remains the single greatest defeat for the British Army at the hands of a native foe.
