Inspired by our spectacular location on the mighty Zambezi River in Zimbabwe, Matetsi Victoria Falls combines dramatic architectural design and luxurious interiors with the vibrancy of the Zimbabwean people. The result is an award-winning luxury nature retreat that offers the discerning traveller an unparalleled luxury safari experience. Just 40 km upstream from the UNESCO World Heritage site, Victoria Falls – while our proximity to the largest waterfall in the world is notable - it is just one of the many experiences we offer. Set on 15km of private Zambezi river frontage, your arrival at Matetsi Victoria Falls will signal a slow retreat into the senses with exclusive access to 55 000 hectares of Matetsi Private Game Reserve. This is big sky country – a land of giant baobabs and ancient acacias, red soil and burnished grasslands, and abundant wildlife – all set within a pristine wilderness area that extends for as far as the eye can see. A family-owned property, Matetsi Victoria Falls combines the luxury safari experience with a wish-list visit to the largest waterfall on earth. And it also offers a uniquely authentic and personal experience that embodies the hope and dynamism of this incredible country and its people.
