Matetsi Water Lodge
Situated just 40 kilometres upstream from the magnificent Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, Matetsi extends over 45,000 hectares (111,200 acres) of pristine African wilderness – the largest private wildlife concession in the country. With 15 kilometres (nine miles) of exclusive Zambezi River frontage, Matetsi offers an unrivalled river experience in addition to spectacular game viewing and birdwatching.
World-renowned as one of Africa’s most unforgettable natural retreats, Matetsi is a conservation coup for &Beyond (formerly Conservation Corporation Africa) who transformed the area – previously a hunting concession – into a protected wilderness reserve. Today, the lush banks of the Zambezi River boast a remarkable array of African wildlife – including huge elephant and buffalo herds, and rare roan and sable antelope.
The luxurious safari lodge is renowned for sophisticated accommodation and sweeping views of the river and the surrounding African wilderness.
There are many exciting water activities such as boat cruises (pictured below), canoeing and fishing, inaddition to the excellent gameviewing and birdwatching.
