The spirit of Matetsi River House

Matetsi River House is a sole-use villa that boasts four spacious bedrooms, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Cool and elegant interiors create a contrast to the rugged exterior, which pays homage to the region’s basket-weaving traditions. Beautiful natural furnishings are complimented by distinct, locally-created artworks, while spacious ensuite bathrooms come complete with inviting bathtubs and showers – offering a tranquil retreat after an adventure-filled day.

An extensive private veranda looks out onto the mighty Zambezi, while a private rim-flow pool mimics the contours of the river banks, promising the ultimate refreshment. Revel in exhilarating morning and afternoon game drives, tracking vast herds of buffalo, elephant, and the roaming predators that skulk across the landscape. Embark on exciting adventures including walking safaris, birdwatching, canoeing, boat excursions and fishing. Enjoy sundowners in the bush as you watch the sky transform from golden orange to billowing clouds of pomegranate descending into inky black. Take a glorious helicopter flight over the thundering Victoria Falls, and view stunning sightings of wildlife in the massive Zambezi National Park below.
