Set on the Zimbabwean side of Victoria Falls, Matetsi River House is a private and luxurious holiday villa that is perfect for indulgent getaways with friends or family. Being on an expansive 50 000-hectare private game reserve means you can enjoy total tranquillity, picture-perfect river views and authentic wildlife safaris while still being close to all the action at Victoria Falls.

Guests have exclusive use of the elegant 4-bedroom villa, along with perks like a private vehicle and a dedicated staff. There is also the convenience of planning activities and meals according to your own schedule and preferences. Game drives, nature walks, river cruises, fishing and canoeing offer opportunities to track lion, leopard, African wild dog and spotted hyena, and encounter large herds of elephant, buffalo and plains game. When you are not exploring Matetsi Game Reserve, travel to Victoria Falls (about a hour's drive) for white-water rafting, helicopter rides, micro-lighting and other adventure activities.
