Matetsi Victoria Falls

Last updated: 27 December, 2023

Enjoying 15km of exclusive Zambezi River frontage as part of its 50,000-hectare private wilderness concession, Matetsi Victoria Falls offers a perfect mix of aquatic adventure and bushveld escapism.

Set 45-minutes’ drive upstream from the Falls, the 18 luxury suites – plunge pools come standard – are divided into two intimate camps, each with its own dining and communal areas.

Multi-generational travellers will love Matetsi River House, a four-bedroom exclusive-use villa that includes a dedicated chef, butler and field guide. Activities range from boat cruises and safari drives to guided tours of Victoria Falls.

Surrounding area

Matetsi Victoria Falls is set on the banks of the Zambezi River, with every suite enjoying expansive river views. The camps rest at one end of a vast wilderness concession, ensuring no end of privacy and exclusivity.

If there’s a downside, it’s that visiting the Falls requires a 45-minute drive, so there’s little chance to discover local restaurants and nightlife. But that’s a small price to pay for this remarkable riverside location.
