What Guests Love About Matetsi

After staying at the River House or Lodge, former guests at Matetsi have only found memories of using wellness spa, exercising in the lap pool, reflecting in the reading room, and discussing business in the boardroom. All this complemented by an exclusive shopping boutique and a curated wine vault to finish off the day.

The private game reserve allowed for guests to do private game drives twice a day, be escorted on walking tours by experienced guides or go bird watching. For those who prefer to chill, there are moonlit dinners away from the lodge.

An added benefit was the relative closeness to Victoria Falls. This allowed for quick access to see the falls or take a helicopter ride.

An added benefit was that the lodge is far way from the town to avoid hearing the never-ending sound of helicopter tours.


Unforgettable experiences in a breathtaking setting.
