About

Our Story

Family-owned and independently run, our beautifully designed luxury safari lodge, sits on the banks of the Zambezi river, within its own 136,000-acre pristine wilderness, Matetsi Private Game Reserve.

Comprising 16 suites, 2 family suites and a private villa, Matetsi Victoria Falls offers the ideal combination of safari, river, relaxation and the Falls all-in-one. We cater to guests looking for the ultimate exclusive location from which to explore this remarkable part of the world.

In order to showcase exceptional local talent, we have brought together an 100% Zimbabwean team on property, led by General Manager, Jono Hudson. With an in-depth understanding of the founding family’s vision, Jono and his team have created a centre for excellence at Matetsi Victoria Falls – from our attentive but not obtrusive butlers to our extraordinary chefs and amazing guides, the passion of our team comes through in every aspect of our guest experience.
