Victoria Falls,

A nearly ten-mile stretch along the mighty Zambezi River becomes your private playground at 19-suite Matetsi Victoria Falls. The vibrant Zimbabwean spirit is evident throughout this family-owned and run safari lodge, from its distinctive design and local artistry to its warm, gracious hospitality. Set out with your conservation-minded guide on foot, by vehicle, and by boat, watching with delight as great herds of elephant, buffalo, and plains wildlife roam the private game reserve’s 136,000 acres of protected wilderness. Share stories of your safari adventures under night skies at a traditional African boma barbecue.

  • Flight of Angels Helicopter Experience

    Valid for Travel Now Through 07 Jan 2024

    Stay 4 nights or more at Matetsi Victoria Falls and receive a complimentary “Flight of Angels” scenic helicopter flight over the Victoria Falls. This affectionate name is borne from the explorer David Livingstone’s description of the falls the first time he laid eyes on them “A sight so lovely it must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”

    This experience starts as your helicopter lifts off from Matetsi Private Game Reserve’s helipad. You’ll fly across the reserve, with the opportunity to see wildlife from the air, and down the Zambezi River towards the mighty Victoria Falls. Marvel at the Batoka Gorge formation and experience the renowned Flight of the Angels over the Victoria Falls, the world’s largest waterfall, the scale of which can only truly be appreciated from the air.

    After touch down in Victoria Falls town, you may then enjoy a guided walking Tour of the Falls and a complimentary High Tea at The Victoria Falls Hotel, before retreating back to the tranquility of the lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River in the late afternoon for an evening activity.

    Virtuoso amenities are included. Book direct with reservations via phone or email.
