Priced from USD 550 per person | Matesti River Lodge 

Offering a unique combination of rich wildlife viewing and scenic Victoria Falls experiences, Matesti River Lodge is set on a massive concession that boasts 15km (9 miles) of private Zambezi River frontage. The broad Zambezi River runs deep alongside two intimate camps, with nine river-facing suites each. Clad in an intricate woven pattern that calls to mind the country’s rich heritage, the cool and spacious suites boast contemporary interiors embellished with natural finishes, and decorated with abstract pieces of art created by a renowned local artist. Each suite features a lovely bathroom and private veranda with exceptional views of the river. Set in the deep shade of riverside trees, each camp has a dedicated guest area.

Mouth-watering flavours are created in an interactive kitchen and served indoors or beneath a canopy of mangosteen and waterberry trees. Al fresco dining takes place next to the quiet murmur of the Zambezi’s running waters, punctuated by a choir of frogs and the throaty chuckling of hippos, while fresh, African mornings are accented by the stirring cry of fish eagles. As the sun slips beneath the water, guests gather in the cosy bar area to swap stories of the day’s adventures. Leisure hours can be spent in the shared guest area and, for the more actively inclined, a well-equipped fitness centre or in the 23 metre (76 foot) pool. Revel in fascinating morning and afternoon game drives, walking safaris, birdwatching, canoeing, boat excursions and fishing.

  1. Amazing experience, resort, and staff

    What an amazing resort!! Do not miss the opportunity to experience such a wonderful place, along with they awesome staff. I enjoyed my visit at the resort and loved the activities provided. I can’t wait for my next visit!

  2. Amaaaaaaaazing

    Wow, if you want to stay in paradise this place is for you! I stayed here as a solo traveller at the end of my tour around Sth. Africa / Botswana and Zimbabwe for some R&R and I couldn’t have chosen a better venue. Whilst this was a little more on the premium side to what I am used to it was pure heaven having a 5 star menu for breakfast lunch and dinner with a great selection of wines. Their sunset cruises and game drives are also fabulous along with their spa services. I enjoyed every minute of my stay here and will be visiting again. Thank you to the team for making my experience such a good one 🙂

  3. Best place we have ever stayed at!

    Hands down, the coolest place we’ve ever stayed!

    We left the last few days of our trip open to see where the adventure was taking us and had our eye on a few spots in Zim. We liked what we saw on Trip Advisor for the River Lodge but couldn’t seem to book anything online (poor connection perhaps). So we took our chances and just showed up! The reception was welcoming and lucky for us there was availability. Our experience from the moment we stepped onto the boat to take us to the lodge was top-notch! Personalized, luxurious hospitality.
