Matetsi River Lodge

PLAN MY TRIP

Situated on an exclusive stretch of the Zambezi River, Matetsi Lodge offers an intimate safari camp experience only 40 km above world famous natural wonder, Victoria Falls.

Accommodations at the lodge are split between two camps with nine suites a piece for a total of eighteen including two adjoining family suites. The lodge’s airy wood and copper red gold design pays tribute to the rich mining history of the area. Each suite boasts a king bed and floor to ceiling windows with views of the riverbank and an en suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers and a large circular bath. Guests enjoy a relaxing view on their own private veranda set within the shade of the bank side trees or from the cool waters of the rim-flow pool. Unique art from Zimbabwean-born painter, Helen Teede, decorates the walls of the suite.

Set within the Matetsi Private Game Reserve on extensive private riverfront property, the lodge provides ample opportunities for wildlife encounters. A large variety of wildlife from cheetahs, lions, hyenas, wild dogs, elephants, and zebras call this area home. Moreover, the lodge enjoys a close proximity to Victoria Falls, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the world’s largest waterfall, and one of CNN’S 7 Natural Wonders of the World.

A wide range of activities are available to take advantage of both the lodge’s river setting and the nearby Victoria Falls. Riverboat cruises and canoeing expeditions take guests out on the Zambezi River with excellent photo opportunities to snap pictures of snapping hippos, birds, crocodiles, and elephants out for a drink. Game drives are offered twice daily in open-air vehicles with armed guards and knowledgeable guides with views of herds of elephants, rare sable antelope, and lions to name a few. For an up-close walk on the wild side, the lodge offers interpretative bush walks with a professional ranger. Daily tours to Victoria Falls including high tea at the world-famous Victoria Falls Hotel are available. For the more daring, the lodge can book a bungi jump at Victoria Falls or gorge swing across the Zambezi, as well as helicopter tours, white water rafting, and zipline tours.

An all-inclusive property, rates include three meals, soft drinks, local wines, beers, and spirits as well as refreshments on game drives. Canoeing, fishing, and sundowner cruise are also included. The lodge has a wine cellar, spa mala, lap pool, and fitness center. Delicious local fare are served indoors or beside the river tempting palates as well as providing a feast for the eyes and ears.
