Matetsi Water Lodge

Set like a precious jewel on the lush banks of the great Zambezi River, the spectacular Matetsi Water Lodge is a fusion of teak, slate and thatch reflecting the spirit of ancient Zimbabwe and the legendary River. Shaded by waterberry and mangosteen trees, the Lodge comprises three individual and intimate camps, each with six air conditioned suites complete with plunge pools, ensuites and sweeping views of the mighty Zambezi River.
