Although Shiwa Ng'andu Manor House has become more well known through the best-selling book, The Africa House, we've been organising trips here for many years. It's an English manor house, set on the Shiwa Ng’andu estate, complete with red-brick gatehouse, clay-tiled roofed workers' cottages, a long approach avenue, formal gardens, a lake, and even its own chapel. The house is an extraordinary testament to the determination of its founder, Sir Stewart Gore-Browne, and is filled with memorabilia and historical records.

Our view of Shiwa Ng'andu

Charlie and Jo are wonderful hosts and have done a fantastic job in restoring the manor house and estate at Shiwa Ng’andu, as well as some of the other buildings. They have opened up their home to visitors and have a way of making their guests feel very welcome, yet still manage to continue the day-to-day routine of running the estate. For many visitors, Shiwa Ng’andu is a highlight of their trip.
