Matetsi River House
is located in the Victoria Falls
area in northwest Zimbabwe
Situated on the southern bank of the Zambezi River, within a 500 square kilometre private concession some 50km upstream of Victoria Falls, Matetsi River Lodge is a very upmarket place, one of the finest accommodation options within striking distance of the Victoria Falls.
The place is a four bedroom annex to the main Matetsi River Lodge
and is ideal for families and other groups looking for complete exclusivity. The house comes with a complement of staff including a chef, butler and safari guide, with guests also benefiting from a private safari vehicle and private activities. Over at the main lodge there is also a wine cellar, television lounge, gift shop and a boma for outside dining in the evening. Service levels are to the very highest standards.
Activities in the immediate area include vehicle safari, motorboat safari and canoe safari. Further afield there are visits to Victoria Falls, white-water rafting, bungee jumping and helicopter flights.
The main potential downsides are the very high prices, the fact that it too far from the falls to comfortably undertake repeated visits and the design of the lodge is in some ways rather heavy and urban.
