Since opening our doors in 2016, the hard work and dedication of our team, who make Matetsi Magic, has been acknowledged with an array of awards.
Matetsi Victoria Falls pioneers a whole new way of experiencing the Falls, and accolades like these help to position us on a global stage. In fact, part of our mission
since conception has been to position Matetsi Victoria Falls as the number one lodge in Africa, and in doing so show the world how exceptional our country and
our people are. Therefore, our team were over the moon with the incredible news that we received in mid-2021.
