Matetsi River Lodge
An exclusive safari lodge that combines exceptional wildlife viewing on the banks of the Zambezi River at the pristine Matetsi Private Game Reserve with easy access to the magnificent Victoria Falls.
Matetsi River Lodge Mouth-watering flavours are created in an interactive kitchen and served indoors or beneath a canopy of mangosteen and waterberry trees. Al fresco dining takes place next to the quiet murmur of the running waters; punctuated by a choir of frogs as well as the throaty chuckling of hippos; while fresh, African mornings are accented by the stirring cry of fish eagles. As the sun slips beneath the water; guests gather in the cosy bar area to swap stories of the day’s adventures.
At &Beyond Matetsi River Lodge life slows down to the majestic pace of the broad Zambezi River; whose waters run deep alongside two intimate camps; each with just nine river-facing suites as well as a family suite. 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 also decorated with abstract pieces of art created by a renowned local artist. Set in the deep shade of riverside trees; each camp has a dedicated guest area with sweeping views of the Zambezi.
