About
Description
5-Star rated Matetsi Victoria Falls on the pristine 55 000 hectare Matetsi Private Game Reserve, offers a safari oasis that combines an exceptional wildlife experience and 15km (9.3 miles) of private Zambezi More River frontage with easy access to the majestic Victoria Falls. Matetsi Private Game Reserve pays homage to the wonderfully rich cultural heritage of Zimbabwe by showcasing a vibrant theme of wood and copper, the “red gold” of the country’s historical mining industry, throughout the spectacular interiors of Matetsi River Lodge and Matetsi River House. Splashes of bright blue remind guests of the rushing waters of the Zambezi River. Guests staying at Matetsi River Lodge and Matetsi River House have the opportunity to take advantage of an extensive Boutique, a fitness studio, massage sala and boardroom. A 20 meter long, rim-flow swimming pool stretches along the riverbank, while an exclusive wine cellar boasts eye-level views of the Zambezi River. Less
