Gingindlovu in the Zululand area of KwaZulu-Natal owes its origins to the military headquarters established in the mid-1800s by the future Zulu king Cetshwayo following his triumph against his brothers in a bloody battle for succession at Ndondakusuka. Cetshwayo named his headquarters Gingindlovu, or Swallower of the Elephant for it was said that by defeating his brothers - Prince Mbulazi in particular- he had eaten up the greatest opponent to his ambitions. To the British soldiers who fought two major battles against King Cetshwayo's army here 20 years later during the Anglo Zulu War, the village was known fondly as 'Gin, gin, I love you'.
