Set on a private nine mile stretch of the mighty Zambezi – meaning “The Great River” in the local Tonga language – you will find the award-winning safari lodge and luxury villa.
Just 25 miles upriver from the rush and spray of the Falls, Matetsi Victoria Falls offers both world-class safari experiences and an idyllic oasis from which to explore, adventure, relax and recharge. Experience stellar five-star services rivaled only by the spectacular natural wonders surrounding Matetsi River Lodge and River House. Guests, accompanied by knowledgeable, conservation-minded guides, are invited to explore Matetsi Private Game Reserve’s 55,000 hectares of protected and unspoiled wilderness on foot, by vehicle and by boat, while great herds of elephant, buffalo and plains game delight and amaze.
The Gardiner family, with local architect Kerry Van Leenhoff, dynamic hotelier Franco Rienzo and the teams of talented local artists, artisans, game rangers and hospitality staff, create the finest safari and cultural experiences, showcasing the richly varied beauty of Zimbabwe’s people and magnificent wilderness.
Above all, the Zimbabwean spirit is at the heart of everything that is done on the property to make Matetsi Victoria Falls a unique experience thanks to the visionary owners’ passion, to the distinctly local design and architecture, and to the artistry and warmth of the Matetsi team.
