About Matetsi Victoria Falls
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 pit.
Each of the nine spacious suites, at the two intimate camps, are encased in local and repurposed materials that reference the ancient fishing 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 offers a refreshing plunge pool and a comfortable sitting area that overlooks the river.
Matetsi River Lodge is located on the banks of the Zambezi river, about a 45 minute drive from Victoria Falls.
How to get there
An 11-hour international flight to Johannesburg International Airport from the UK, followed by a 1-hour 45-minute flight to Victoria Falls. Matetsi River Lodge is a 45-minute road transfer from the airport. Alternatively, you can fly to Victoria Falls via Harare.
When to go
Zimbabwean rains fall primarily during December, January, February and March. The night time temperatures start to drop in late March.
Nights in June, July and August become much cooler. In September and October the temperatures rise once again and guests can expect to see some fantastic game, as Zimbabwe's wildlife concentrate around the limited water sources.
Please consult your GP for advise on vaccinations and medication.
Travelling with children
Game drives are available to children aged twelve years and older. Children aged six to twelve are permitted on game drives at the lodge managerâs discretion. Nature walks are limited to those over the age of 16. Children younger than six cannot participate in lodge activities.
Children also have the opportunity to embark on their very exciting WILDCHILD programme, which is filled with fun, interactive activities that offer opportunities to learn and discover new experiences and cultures. Little ones can enjoy adventures such as learning to make a fishing rod, fishing and baking biscuits in an interactive kitchen.
