Immerse yourself in the rhythm of river life from the morning you open your eyes with luxurious suites set in the shade of the riverside trees.
Blending perfectly into their environment, the two intimate camps of Matetsi River Lodge reflect the deep traditions and undaunted spirit of the land, from ancient fishing methods to time-honoured basket-weaving techniques.
Striking and contemporary interiors are enhanced by rustic accents and distinctive artworks created by renowned Zimbabwean-born painter, Helen Teede, breathing new life into the spirit of classical safari. Broad and welcoming, king-sized beds set snugly in front of floor-to-ceiling glass windows that let in a glimpse of the secret life of the river banks.

Tranquil and shady, a spacious private veranda provides magnificent river views, which can be enjoyed from a comfortable sitting area or the cool depths of a sparkling rim-flow pool. As dusk sets, atmospheric lantern-lit private dinners are served to a serenade of Africa’s night sounds.
