Resting on the river

Luxury safari operator andBeyond has released new images of its recently opened Matetsi River Lodge near Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.

The 123,500-acre private wildlife reserve sits on the banks of the Zambezi River and has two camps, each with nine suites. A four-bedroom private villa is also available for groups of up to eight, with a private veranda, a swimming pool and a dedicated guide, chef, butler and private vehicle.

The camp is decorated with traditional wooden and stone carvings, with accents of copper throughout to highlight the area’s natural mineral reserves.

Guests have the opportunity to view the richly diverse wildlife of the Victoria Falls area, which includes zebra, giraffe, buffalo, big cats, antelope and elephants.

A tour of the Victoria Falls is included in the rate for a stay of two or more nights, where guests are accompanied by andBeyond guides to explore paths around the Victoria Falls Park, a visit to the Livingstone statue and a luxurious high tea at the Victoria Falls Hotel.

Fully inclusive rates at andBeyond Matetsi River Lodge start at US$675 (about A$895) per person, per night.
