SHIWA NGANDU HORSE SAFARIS
Shiwa House is located in the heart of Northern Zambia, to the north of Luangwa National Park and overlooks Shiwa Ngandu, the "Lake of the Royal Crocodiles." The house was originally designed and built by Sir Stewart and Gore-Browne in the 1920's but fell into disrepair. In November 1999, Charles Harvey, the eldest grandson and his wife and children bought the house and pursured a loving restoration to the entire estate including local hospitals and schools.
Four double rooms with ensuite facilities are simply decorated with original hardwood furnishings and paintings very much in keeping with the dream and design of Gore-Browne nearly 100 years ago.
The Shiwa Estate includes a 10,000 hectare game reserve with 22 mammal species, of which there are large herds of Zebra, Blue Wildebeest, and numerous herds of antelope, leopard, Caracal, and Serval Cats. On occasion, a pack of wild dogs come through from neighboring reserves. For Shiwa House riding, you should be competent at all strides. This riding is good for confident riders only, no beginners. All riders should have an independent seat and be secure in the saddle. The riding can be fast with long canters and gallops along beautiful sandy tracks and through forest paths. Tehre are beautiful open plains where there is opportunity to view and gallop with the Zebra or other antelope species.
