Historic manor house in Africa
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 “real Africa”. A majestic house built in the 1920s in the style of a traditional English country home. Loaded with history, it has been converted into a magnificent and exclusive lodge.
The original brick mansion and its surrounding 40 square-mile estate were built by Sir Stewart Gore-Browne. A former British Army officer who fell in love with the African bush. All five guest rooms have been lovingly restored with their original hardwood furnishings plus modern en-suite bathrooms. The whole place has a special, welcoming ambience with fireplaces lit every evening.
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 on an estate farm. Relaxed morning drives, horse riding through the hills and fascinating historical tours.
Shiwa Ng’andu is a unique and fascinating destination in Zambia.
