"Shiwa Ng'andu review"

2 nights Arrived 29 Apr 2009
"A wonderful experience in a wonderful place. Charlie, Jo and Emma were extremely hospitable and friendly, with nothing too much trouble. We loved hearing about the history of the estate, particularly the years not covered by The Book (Africa House). It was fascinating to hear how Charlie is making his grandfather's dream come true.

The atmosphere is one of a country house party. We also appreciated how the family welcomed our pilot as well. (sounds grander than it was, but the charter pilot stayed with us for two nights as well as they had no other jobs for him at the time).

We enjoyed all the activities, including birding in the beautiful garden and by the Lake, the tour of the farm and the visit to Kapisha Hot Springs where we discovered that Charlie's brother Mark used to drink in a pub in our village when he was a student. As there are less than 500 residents, this is something odf a coincidence.

The food was excellent despite the apparent late arrival of the supply truck (we didn't notice) and I'm looking forward to trying Jo's Boerworst recipe.

On the last morning Jo and Charlie arranged for us to go up Nachipala Bareback Hill which was hard work but well worth the effort with fantastic views all around." See all these reviews: 14n in Zambia

"Shiwa Ng'andu review"

3 nights Arrived 17 Oct 2008
"Absolutely fantastic location, exceeding our expectations (having both read the Africa House)

Owners were unfortunately away but Frank, the House Manager, was a fantastic host especially bearing in mind that he was running many aspcts of the farm at the same time.

We found they only take one party at a time so being the only guests this meant it was extra special.
It is such a scenic place that we think they should sell postcards.

The principles by which the farm is run, helping the local community, is quite outstanding and a role model for others to follow.
The dogs were great fun." See all these reviews: 14n in Zambia

"Shiwa Ng'andu review"

3 nights Arrived 12 Jul 2008
"Jo and Charlie made us feel at home and we would love to hear how their plans are progressing and visit again in a few years time.

The house, garden, farm etc and its history were fascinating and it made a lovely and unusual break from safari lodges. The girls loved the horses and loved riding twice a day everyday." See all these reviews: 11n in Zambia

"Shiwa - a unique experience!"

3 nights Arrived 23 Aug 2007
"This was the perfect oasis in the middle of our 'safari' holiday which provided the ideal contrast to the 'bush' environment.

We could not have been made more welcome and thoroughly enjoyed staying in such style as guests of the Harvey family who were the perfect hosts. What an amazing place!" See all these reviews: 14n in Zambia
