The history of the reserve goes back to 1911 when a young British officer, Stewart Gore-Brown, was sent to determine the border between Northern Rhodesia and the Belgian Congo. He fell in love with the area and in 1914 returned to purchase a vast estate near a lake, which he named Shiwa Ng'andu.
Nearby is Kapishya, a hot spring surrounded by tropical vegetation and tall raffia palms, and Chiusa Falls, whilst a three-hour walk leads to Nachipala Bareback Hill offers you magnificent views of the lake.
