Star Rating:

Set under ancient trees on the lush banks of the Zambezi River, Matetsi Water Lodge exudes the magic and mystery of African legend. Echoing the tranquil tones of the mighty river, the cool colours of the lodge soothe and refresh, while warm smiles welcome you to the family. Bold, spacious suites open up to breathtaking river views and leafy boughs provide shelter for leisurely meals on the river banks. Languid hammocks on the river’s edge entice guests to dream the afternoon away, while the thundering smoke of Victoria Falls murmurs an invitation to a day of adventure only an hour’s drive away.

Matetsi Water Lodge is located on 15 km of private Zambezi River frontage, and on a 50 000 hectare (123 550 acre) wildlife concession in northwestern Zimbabwe, just 40 km upstream (25 miles) from Victoria Falls. The Reserve is unfenced, allowing for the free movement of animals between Botswana’s Chobe National Park and the Zambezi National Park.
