&Beyond Matetsi River Lodge

Upstream from Victoria Falls and situated on a private game reserve, &Beyond Matetsi River Lodge is a haven of tranquillity that enjoys 15 kilometres of exclusive river frontage.  The falls themselves and the various activities in the area, such as helicopter trips, are easily accessible and guests can also enjoy game drives and walks on the 50,000 hectare reserve where elephants, lions and more can be found.

One of the highlights of a stay at Matetsi is the private stretch of the Zambezi River where guests can take motorboat and canoeing excursions exploring the riverbanks with its birdlife, hippos and crocodiles.

The lodge is actually two camps each with nine suites and its own guest area overlooking the river.  The two camps share a central lodge area with a swimming pool, gym and wine cellar.  The spacious and luxurious suites, including two bedroom family suites, all face the river and have a contemporary design with unique works of art.  

If you are looking for more exclusivity look no further than the River House which can accommodate four adults and four children and has a swimming pool, indoor and outdoor dining areas, a private chef and butler and a dedicated guide and game drive vehicle.
