Matetsi Victoria Falls

An elegant, contemporary safari lodge imbued with local tradition and the spirit of the Zambezi

The spirit of Matetsi Victoria Falls

Offering a unique combination of rich wildlife viewing and scenic Victoria Falls experiences, two beautiful accommodation options are offered at Matetsi Victoria Falls. Matetsi River Lodge is set on a private concession and the broad Zambezi River runs deep alongside two intimate camps, with nine river-facing suites each. Clad in an intricate woven pattern that calls to mind the country’s rich heritage, the cool and spacious suites boast contemporary interiors embellished with natural finishes, and decorated with abstract pieces of art, created by a renowned local artist. Each suite features a lovely bathroom and private veranda with exceptional views of the river. Set in the deep shade of riverside trees, each camp has a dedicated guest area. Delicious menus are created in an interactive kitchen and served indoors or beneath a canopy of trees. Al fresco dining takes place next to the Zambezi’s running waters.

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. An extensive private veranda looks out onto the mighty Zambezi, while a private rim-flow pool promises the ultimate refreshment. Matetsi Private Game Reserve offers an array of activities. Revel in twice-daily game drives, walking safaris, birdwatching, canoeing, boat excursions and fishing. Enjoy sundowners in the bush and take a glorious helicopter flight over the thundering Victoria Falls.
