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, on the Shiwa Ng’andu Estate, complete with redbrick gatehouse, clay-tiled roofed workers' cottages, a long approach avenue, formal gardens, and it even has its own chapel adjacent to the house. It's dotted with historic memorabilia relating to its founder, Sir Stewart Gore-Browne.
Our view of Shiwa Ng'andu
Charlie and Jo are wonderful hosts and have done a fantastic job in restoring the manor house at Shiwa Ng’andu, as well as some of the old buildings on the estate. They have opened up their home to visitors and have a way of making their guests feel very welcome and at home, and yet still manage to continue their day to day routine of running the estate. Shiwa Ng’andu can easily be visited as a side-trip before or after a safari with any of the camps in the the South Luangwa National Park. It also combines well with the camps in the Kasanka National Park, Wasa Lodge, Luwombwa Lodge as well as Shoebill Island Camp in the Bangweulu Wetlands.
