There is a wide range of activities available within Matetsi Private Game Reserve, and Victoria Falls town offers additional activities catering for authentic culture seekers through to avid adventure enthusiasts.
Highly acclaimed for exquisite distinctly African contemporary interiors, Matetsi Victoria Falls, is very much in keeping with its natural surrounds. Polished earth finishes, lustrous hand-beaten local copper detailing, and seamless flows between interior and exterior living spaces. The theme of 'Life on the River', as conceptualised by our Zimbabwean architectural designer, comes through subtly with clay-pot down lighters, fish-trap inspired features and custom works by local artisans.
