andBeyond Matetsi River Lodge showcases two intimate camps of just nine river-facing suites each, including two family suites. 

Each camp features its own guest area with a variety of dining spaces, an interactive kitchen, a convivial bar area and an al fresco area that encircles a blazing fire bowl.

Each of the nine spacious suites, at the two intimate camps, are encased in local and repurposed materials that reference the ancient fishing and basket-weaving traditions of the region. The clean lines of the interiors are softened by authentic craft pieces and curated natural objects. A lovely ensuite bathroom boasts indoor and outdoor showers as well as a deep circular bath, which looks out over the Zambezi. A private veranda offers a refreshing plunge pool and a comfortable sitting area that overlooks the river.
