Your Zambezi River Safari Experience

Location is everything at Matetsi Victoria Falls. Nestled under a woodland forest on an exclusive stretch of the Zambezi River, it’s just 50 kilometres from Victoria Falls itself. The lodge also offers a solid selection of safari activities right on your doorstep.

If you’re more concerned with staying well-away from tourist hubs, you will hit the jackpot here. Matetsi Victoria Falls is divided into two main sections for a greater sense of intimacy and exclusivity, making it perfect for a African honeymoon.

The private suites are all river-facing and well-spaced apart to ensure your privacy (there are options for families, too). If you’re travelling as a large group, the exclusive-use, four-bedroom Matetsi River House will tick all the right boxes.

The two self-sufficient sections at Matetsi Victoria Falls each come with its own cosy bar and outdoor terrace, as well as an inviting lounge and dining area. The two camps share a few main facilities like a sparkling rim-flow pool, gym and boutique shop. They also share what is perhaps the best-stocked and most impressive wine cellar we have seen in Africa. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, private dinners can be arranged here.

When you’re ready to get your blood pumping and heart racing, take your pick from fishing trips, sundowner cruises, kayaking, river rafting, bush walks and 4x4 game drives within the reserve. Be sure to set aside a day to take a tour of the falls and if you’re feeling particularly daring, try a helicopter flight, a bungee jump, or gorge swing right across the rumbling Zambezi.
