On the Matetsi Private Game Reserve
On the Matetsi Private Game Reserve, Matetsi Water Lodge is on the banks of the Zambezi River.
The closest city, Victoria Falls, is about 40 minutes away. A daily shuttle brings guests to Victoria Falls to explore the town and visit the city's namesake, the largest waterfall in the world and one of the Seven Natural Wonders. The area also features some shops and restaurants, as well as extreme sports such as white water rafting and bungee jumping. Those looking to avoid heart palpitations can opt for helicopter flights over the falls, or fishing. Slipping across the border to Zambia takes half an hour max -- just don't forget your passport!
Matetsi Water Lodge is located on a massive game reserve by the Zambezi River, about 40 minutes north of Victoria Falls. The lodge's 18 suites are intimate and surprisingly luxe -- each suite has its own plunge pool, patio, and a large bathroom with a separate shower and tub. The bedroom doors open onto to a river view.
