Matetsi Victoria Falls
Matetsi is tucked into a nine mile stretch of private land that runs along the banks of the Zambezi River. Beyond the river bank, 123 000 acres of a private game reserve is yours to explore in the hands of first-class guides.
Matetsi Victoria Falls makes a wonderful addition for those visiting the Victoria Falls with a simple one-hour land transfer or a stunning 15 minute helicopter ride to link the two destinations. The lodge is split into a series of stylish lodgings that offer a private, luxury retreat for each and every guest. The Matetsi River Suites come with everything anyone might need from a private pool to a personal chef, butler, guide and tracker. Family Suites make a cosy base for those travelling with children; the houses have interconnecting rooms, babysitting and specially designed excursions and activities to inspire young minds.
The East and West camps provide a stylish communal area for guests to come together as and when they desire. Here a bar and outdoor dining room have a fun and lively atmosphere in the evenings and the owner’s wine cellar and extensive wine list is worth perusing. A large lap pool, fitness studio, spa and library lined from floor to ceiling with books are all available day and night for Matetsi’s guests.
This North-West region of Zimbabwe is widely recognised as being one of the first in Africa to take a serious and focused approach to preserving and protecting its wildlife and local communities. Matetsi is no exception and the lodge has been carefully designed with minimum impact on the surrounding environment and an awareness for conservation at the heart of everything they do.
The lodge’s vehicles are on standby to access the incredible wildlife thriving in the nearby Reserve and canoes and skiffs are available to navigate the gentle waters of this mighty river. The guides are some of the best in the country ensuring that every experience during your stay here is right up there with the best of the best.
