Matetsi Safari Area

Matetsi Safari Area

Matetsi Unit One is one of the six Matetsi Safari Area Hunting blocks in the North Western part of Zimbabwe.

It is without doubt considered perhaps one of the premium free range Dangerous Game hunting concessions in Zimbabwe. There are fantastic populations of Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant, Sable and Plains game to be found.

In Matetsi you will find most, if not all, the trophy animals you are looking for all in one hunting area. This unspoiled wilderness offers an unforgettable experience.

Matetsi is the oldest hunting safari area in Zimbabwe with large numbers of various migrating herds crossing from Hwange National Park through the area year after year. These migrations ensure good populations of game, and as a result, predators are plentiful as they follow the herds through.

Access to the area is from Victoria Falls with only a 1 hour drive to your destination from the airport.

Matetsi Accommodation

The lodging and accommodation provided have a 5 star rating offering comfort with excellent facilities and meals.

The lodge has well maintained gardens with a swimming pool and very comfortable thatched chalets to relax in after a long day out in the bush.

Come and experience wholesome hospitality.
