Our 5 day stay at Matetsi was way and beyond what we ever expected. We were relaxed within minutes. Spoilt for choice with Game, Fishing & Canoeing on tap followed by sumptuous meals & a wine selection of note. 👏 Thank you to the Matetsi team for an amazing holiday

Wow ... our trip to Matetsi Private Game Reserve was one to remember! The lodges are fantastic, each with a touch of luxury while still making you feel like you're in the bush. We really loved the attention to detail in and around the lodge. Our butler was always there when we needed him, and the Matetsi team were very...

My family and I were recently treated to the trip of a lifetime at Matetsi Private Game Lodge near Victoria Falls. Its difficult to put into words such an awe inspiring trip. To be on the banks of the mighty Zambezi surrounded by lion, giraffe and buffalo in the wild is a gift in itself, but to do it from...

We just got back from Matetsi (December 2016) after a 3 location &Beyond vacation. Everything about Matetsi's lodge was above and beyond our expectations. The facilities were outstanding. The food was incredible. And the staff was warm, welcoming, and anticipated our every need. We stayed 2 nights there. The only thing we wish we could change is that we would...

Everybody that's looking for an accommodation in this area, don't hesitate and go to this place. My family and I stayed here for three nights in August 2016. We had the honor of being the first and only four guests of the renewed &Beyond Lodge. And it was fantastic. The food was great, the rooms are a piece of art,...

A dear friend brought us to Matetsi for three days, and I only wish we had more time to spend with the amazing family there. From check in to check out we were discretely and splendidly served by the fantastic team. Tarasai's cheer was always there for us! The game drives were fantastic, the amenities flawless, and the setting divine....

What a beautiful place, definitely a little piece of heaven. We travelled with our 3 year old daughter and staff at Matetsi could not have done more to ensure she was always entertained and we had a relaxing holiday. Fantastic game viewing, delicious food and all round a great time.

I absolutely loved my time at Matetsi! I went in the first week of November for 3 nights and everything was absolutely wonderful. This is the ~20th andBeyond property and 9th trip to Africa, so I am very familiar with the company and its ethos/standards. Throughout my time there, I kept thinking "wow, the gang is back together, so amazing!"...

I visited Matetsi for three nights. The super efficient enthusiastic staff made me feel so welcome from the second I arrived - any outside stress magically seemed to disappear. Lodges are beautiful and the private plunge pool is a lovely touch. I was privileged to encounter lion on my first game viewing outing, the guides are extremely knowledgeable and professional,...

I spent two nights at Matetsi with family visiting from abroad and it was magnificent! We felt more than welcome from the moment we arrived to the moment they all waved goodbye when we left.

Splashes of bright blue remind guests of the rushing waters of the Zambezi River, while traditional abstract carvings and local artworks complement the natural and contemporary atmosphere of the reserve’s safari lodge and sole-use villa.
