Matetsi River Lodge
Matesti is located in the north of an enormous trans-border conservation area which incorporates Zimbabwe's Hwange and Zambezi National Parks, as well as Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta in Botswana. It lies along an ancient migratory route for the vast herds of elephant and other game animals which inhabit this conservation area, and there are no fences to limit these age-old movements of wildlife back and forth to the Zambezi river. At Matetsi you can experience the best of three worlds: Victoria Falls, the Zambezi River, and wildlife safari.
Day and night game-drive safaris are conducted in specially adapted open Landrovers, accompanied by professional guides and experienced trackers. Interpretive bush walks with your guide and tracker provide even deeper and more 'hands-on' insight into the many intricate eco-systems of the African savanna.
In addition to land-based activities, Matetsi takes advantage of its prime location on the Zambezi River, 25 miles upstream from the roaring falls, to offer private and exclusive boating and canoeing excursions. And, of course, guests have the opportunity to tour the mighty Victoria Falls, roughly an hour by road from the lodge.
Matetsi River Lodge is separated into two individual, intimate camps of nine suites each. Each air-conditioned suite boasts a private, river-facing deck with a plunge pool and a spacious en-suite bathroom complete with circular bathtub as well as indoor and outdoor showers, all with River views. The suites are built from local and repurposed materials reflecting the fishing and basket-weaving heritage of the region; tones are earthy, with splashes of blue as homage to the Zambezi River.
Meals are taken in the spacious, open-sided dining area overlooking the Zambezi River, or at individual riverside tables under giant ebony trees. When not on safari or at the Falls, guests can stay active in the fitness center or 90' lap pool, or enjoy a pampering treatment at the massage sala.
Matetsi River Lodge is unique for offering a high quality land and water-based safari experience within an hour of Victoria Falls, making it an ideal base for travelers with a safari-focus who would also like to see the Falls.
