In 1890 the famous Professor George Nightengale accidentally discovered the Hidden Kingdom of Natagala. Our hero journeyed up to the big curve in the Merowe river that flowed out of Batal Colony and then west into the Great Desert, where he eventually found a rich, primitive culture in a hidden valley on the other side of the Great Desert; the Kingdom of Natagala. Professor Nightengale theorizes that the Natagala are related ethnically to the Matabele and Zulus.

I can certainly understand his theories, though I suspect subtler connections of trade and 'cross-pollination.'

Sorry, but the professor doesn't seem to have one of those reporter fellows at the discovery.

My impression are they are thick as thieves, damned difficult to be shed of, and surprisingly robust bankrolls to help outfit such an expedition.

Famous or not, I'm sure the illustrious Nightengale can use the odd sovereign here and there. And the documentation can be QUITE useful in the future.
