Shiwa Ng,andu is located in the Northernmost part of Zambia amongst the rolling granite hills that form the tail end of the Great Rift Valley, an area of unsurpassed natural beauty.
The estate combines a rich and varied history with a world class private game reserve that is home to over 30 species of wildlife and over 300 species of birds.
The wildlife reserve covers an area of 22,000 acres of breathtaking terrain and boasts a large natural lake at it's center, one of the largest privately owned bodies of water in Africa.
The guest experience at Shiwa Ng'andu is truly unique. Guests enjoy complete access to the estate, from the extensive historical archives, the wildlife reserve and lake to the day to day workings of the estate farm.
Relaxed morning drives, horseriding through the hills, fascinating historical tours and afternoon sundowners looking across the lake, make the Shiwa Ng'andu Estate a unique destination when travelling to Zambia.
Shiwa has four comfortable en-suite guest rooms, furnished with most of the original pieces from Gore Browne’s era creating a feeling of times gone by.
Simple hardwood fittings with unique paintings and photographs decorate the walls and each one provides a story and memory to be recounted to inquisitive guests during afternoon tea or sundowners on the lake shore.
Activities on offer include exclusive game and bird walks and drives, community interaction, a visit to an iron age archaeological site, boating or fishing on the lake, a day trip to see the working farm, early morning climbs into the Swamp Hides to see the rare and elusive papyrus dwelling Sitatunga antelope and forest walks to see the little Blue Duiker.
Horse riding is also available from Shiwa Horse Safaris for experienced riders who want to encounter the African Bush on horseback.
Shiwa Ng'andu is a wonderful place for families or a group of friends to enjoy the restored 1920's house and grounds of this magnificent estate.
