Nkandla is a town in the uThungulu district of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. It is the seat of the Nkandla Local Municipality, and the district wherein the residence of the current President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma may be found.

Contrary to common perception, the residence is not located in the town of Nkandla but may be found some 40 kilometers to the south beyond the Nkandla Forest and on the road to Kranskop.
