Matetsi River Lodge



40 kilometres from Victoria Falls and built on a private concession that contains 15 kilometres worth of meandering Zambezi river, Matetsi River Lodge is renowned for its comfort, extravagance and world-class service.

Lodge and Accommodation

The lodge’s contemporary design takes the available resources of wood and sculpts it into the square shapes that are synonymous with modern architecture. Charcoal grey walls and weaved-straw chandeliers contrast against the stone floors, wooden ceilings and luscious cushions and bedding to create a rounded experience of strength and comfort.

Each chalet holds an exhilarating amount of detail, blended in with the staples of luxury and comfort. Glass panels facing out onto the Zambezi’s flowing waters, soft fabrics draped across the king-size bed, animal rawhide rugs and magnificent en-suite bathrooms, spaciously laid out with mesmerising chandeliers, standalone bath and a hundred candles lighting the way to your private plunge pool. Watch the sunset cast ripples across the river from the proximity of your deck, which is so inviting that you may just decide to sleep out here.

Activities and Wildlife

With Victoria Falls only a stretch away, you’re guaranteed some of the most thrilling adventures in Africa’s Adrenaline Capital. Here bungee jumping, gorge swinging, zip-lining, helicopter tours and visits to the falls will leave you breathless.

Boat cruises along the majestic Zambezi and walking safaris are led by professionals that are bound to teach you everything you want to know about the land as you make your way through these pristine landscapes.

Game drives take guests out twice a day, revealing the abundant game in the area, where buffalo and elephant are closely followed by lion and spotted hyena. Keep your eyes ready to spot the leopard and African Wild Dog, which are a little more elusive. Whatever your tastes, the expertise of the guides will help you find the animals you’re searching for.
