Shiwa Ngandu is a large farming estate established in the 1920s in a remote part of Northern Zambia. It was established by Sir Stewart Gore-Brown in the style of an English stately home, using local materials and craftsmen. The estate is a fully functional farm stocked with cattle, sheep and horses.
Guests staying here can enjoy a range of outdoor activities including horse-riding for experienced riders, game drives and walks, boating on the lake and visits to local community projects and historical sites.
There are 5 double rooms, accommodating up to 10 guests. Guests have the run of the house, which includes access to Sir Stewart's library. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable. There are open fires throughout the house. The food is simple, wholesome farm fare. The beautiful garden is well-stocked with flowers.
"This was such a unique experience and visiting Shiwa lived up to all our expectations. Hearing from Charlie and Jo themselves about the story of this incredible house was wonderful. They treated us as their own house guests and gave up a lot of their time showing us around the house, farm and estate. The game they have in the area is different from what we saw in Luangwa so our trips out were again exciting."
