Short description

Pair a natural wonder with world-class safari, accommodation and dining


Recommended for:
Food & wine | Natural world | Safari

Set on a 55,000-hectare private wildlife reserve with 15km of Zimbabwe's Zambezi River frontage, the Matetsi is so much more than Victoria Falls. Indeed, alongside the largest waterfall in the world, on game drives and river sailings you’ll be able to spot everything from lion and leopard to giant herds of elephant and buffalo. Then, at the end of each day, you’ll return to the all-inclusive luxuries of one of Southern Africa’s finest accommodations. Think private pools and river views as standard.

Matetsi comes dressed to impress, with distinctly African interiors, informed by the likes of polished earth and hand-beaten local copper. The all-suite accommodation is found right on the river, taking in the views from their private deck, plunge pool and outdoor rain shower. Each is delightfully secluded and extremely generously sized, featuring dressing studies and expansive lounge areas. There are even iPads for guest use, along with the option for family arrangements and a four-bedroom private villa, complete with private pool and its own safari vehicle.

A stay at Matetsi is a fully inclusive affair. Whether you’re taking your gourmet meal by the interactive kitchen or out by the boma fire, it’s all washed down with open-bar drinks from the private wine cellar. Then, once you’ve availed yourself of the lap pool, fitness studio and massage treatments, you’ll want to explore with the fantastic array of included activities.

Along with expert-led game drives and safari walks, there’s plenty of the unique. The likes of fishing and canoeing are joined by sunrise or sunset boat cruises, taking in the mighty Zambezi River at its most beautiful. What's more, any stay for two nights includes a tour of Victoria Falls with afternoon tea, while longer stays even mix in a complimentary helicopter flight over them.
