Matetsi Victoria Falls

Perfectly in tune with Matetsi Private Game Reserve’s pristine habitats, the exclusive &Beyond Matetsi Victoria Falls and &Beyond Matetsi River House, a private sole-use villa, offer a safari oasis that combines an exceptional wildlife experience and 15km (9 miles) of private Zambezi River frontage with easy access to the majestic Victoria Falls. Both the spectacular lodge and villa pay homage to the wonderfully rich cultural heritage of Zimbabwe by showcasing a vibrant theme of wood and copper, the “red gold” of the country’s historical mining industry. Splashes of bright blue remind guests of the rushing waters of the Zambezi River. Here, guests have the opportunity to take advantage of an extensive Safari Shop, tness centre, massage sala and conference facility. A 20 meter long, rim- ow swimming pool stretches along the riverbank, while an exclusive wine cellar boasts eye-level views of the Zambezi River.

&Beyond Matetsi Victoria Falls boasts two intimate camps of just nine river-facing suites each; including two interleading family suites. Each camp features its own guest area with a variety of dining spaces, an interactive kitchen, a convivial bar and an al fresco area that encircles a blazing fire bowl.

Each of the nine spacious suites, at the two intimate camps, are encased in local and repurposed materials that reference the ancient shing and basket-weaving traditions of the region. The clean lines of the interiors are softened by authentic craft pieces and curated natural objects. A lovely ensuite bathroom boasts indoor and outdoor showers as well as a deep circular bath, which looks out over the Zambezi. A private veranda o ers a refreshing plunge pool and a comfortable sitting area that overlooks the river.
