In 1911, British born Sir Stewart Gore Browne moved to Zambia (then Northern Rhodesia) to be a member of the Anglo-Belgian land commission. In 1914, he bought land in Shiwa Ngandu, a place in Northern Zambia that he also named his estate and english manor home that he built.
Now almost 90 years old, the house and the Kapishya hot springs on the estate draws visitors. In this episode, I spoke to Emma Harvey, Sir Gore-Browne's great grand daughter. Emma shared her fond memories of growing up at Shiwa house, some of the activities that can be done by visitors and shared which traditions of her great grandfather are still practiced.
