Nestled in a heady grove of tall trees, 10 minutes drive from the main house, is Impandala House. The house has four spacious and light bedrooms – two en-suite, a warm, hospitable lounge and dining room opening on to a typically colonial all round veranda that offers spectacular views down to the lake.

Despite being a smaller version of the main house it commands its own impressive history and lays claim to being the location for Dr. Kenneth Kaunda's incarceration and the final signings of the Declaration of Independence of Zambia back in 1964. The surroundings and gardens are regularly visited by game, making it a peaceful haven for bird spotters and is often referred to as a 'writers paradise' and those who wish to escape the stress of modern day living.

Impandala House is situated in the grounds of Shiwa Ng’andu and has recently undergone a full restoration and refurbishment, creating a lovely four bedroom house, perfect for families or small groups who wish to explore this remote and fascinating corner of Zambia.

The house is named Impandala after a stream in northern Zambia, and in the local language (Bemba), it’s literally translated as 'aside” or 'to one side”.

You can explore the Shiwa Ng’andu estate – visit the picturesque lake, or walk around the grounds of the Manor house, complete with redbrick gatehouse, and old workers’ cottages. Or if you wish to venture further, then visit the hot springs at Kapishya, about half an hour’s easy drive away. In the evenings, you could go up to the Manor House for supper, and spend some time exploring the famous Shiwa archives.

Impandala House will take eight guests, in four double or twin rooms. The two ground floor rooms have en suite shower-rooms, while the two upstairs share a shower-room.

Impandala is self-catering, but for international clients the estate can supply groceries – eggs, fish, milk and bread can be bought from the local shops on the farm, and the local Zambian farmers will bring their home grown vegetables around for purchase. The house is fully equipped with five staff – a great bird and game guide, two housekeeping ladies, a cook and a gardener.
