Has its own airstrip
Shiwa is approx 800 km from Lusaka, but has its own airstrip so can be easily reached via charter flights from either Mfuwe, Ndola or Lusaka. The roads from Lusaka are generally in good condition so it is possible to self drive and experience the beautiful Zambian countryside on the way to your destination. Although both houses only have four guest rooms, it is possible to make arrangements for larger family groups.
The small, beautiful and ornate chapel at the main house has often been made available for select weddings with a truly unique atmosphere for those special occasions.
The estate is open all year round to guests, although day visitors wishing to have a guided tour of the main house are only accommodated between the hours of 9- 11am every day, after which they are invited to self drive in the game areas. Shiwa has a mild climate and is considered a fairly low risk malaria area making it perfect for family groups.
