Game drives, spa days and chocolates after dinner…. If only Easter happened more often… We want to take this moment to wish you and your loved one’s a very happy Easter.
These are the first words you’ll hear spoken with genuine warmth over and over again when you arrive in Africa.
Africa is a continent that beckons with adventure – it depicts raw beauty like nowhere else in the world.

Africa has its way of building that deep connection with you
and never truly leaves.

Guided sessions can be pre-booked with your Select Destinations itinerary.
New luxury Camp

A new beginning
After 2 years of management under &Beyond, Matetsi Victoria Falls will be operating as owner run and exclusive brand. With its superb location from which to visit the largest waterfall on earth and led by dynamic hotelier Franco Rienzo, expect truly authentic luxury as well as some of the finest safari activities and cultural experiences in the region.
As a great first impression for arriving guests staying at the Royal Livingstone Hotel, Select Destinations can arrange a water taxi transfer along the Zambezi River.
A further activity bound to offer lasting memories is a helicopter flight through the Batoka Gorge, affording views from above the mighty Zambezi as it carves its way through steep cliffs and transforms from a gentle and serene river into the Falls that crash 120m to the valley floor.
Swimming at Devil’s Pool on Livingstone Island is like swimming on the edge of the world. Visitors often can’t see that the floor of the Falls is 350m down on the other side of the pool. Swimming is also possible in the rock pools below the Falls, surrounded by massive basaltic rock with a shower of water gushing down. The activity is water level dependent and it is recommended to pre-book this with your Select Destinations Zambia stay.
