Matetsi Safari Area | Matetsi Unit 2
The Matetsi Safari Area situated in North Western Zimbabwe close to the famous Victoria Falls and is Zimbabwe’s oldest and best-known hunting safari area. The Matetsi Units are the best remaining wild, free range, fair chase hunting areas in Africa today.
Matetsi Unit 2 is 292 Kilometers squared in extent with three client chalets each sleeping two persons, with en-suite bathrooms. There is power in the camp with a backup generator and WIFI in the lodge.
Unit 2 is a National Parks Safari Area, therefore there are no people living in any of the Matetsi Units making them true safari areas.
It is not uncommon to see herds of hundreds of buffalos, plus dagga boy groups in Unit 2. The area is fantastic for cats, lion and leopard.
Unit 2 shares a border with Botswana and also with Units 1 and 3. Fantastic elephant and sable movement from these units and Botswana together with the resident population of animals make this area a big game mecca.
During 2017, Unit 2 was burnt out due to a natural fire. When we were there in September 2017, the re-growth of the grass was already very good and you can be sure that 2018 and 2019 will be fantastic hunting years in Unit 2 as a result of this new grass.
The Professional Hunters guiding the hunts in Units 2 and 5 are Zimbabwe National Parks PH’s. The same PH’s that deal with dangerous problem animals for Zimbabwe Parks. These same PH’s are also responsible for the theoretical and practical examination of Professional Hunters who are in training to become PH’s in Zimbabwe.
The calibre of PH’s guiding these hunts is of the highest standard.
Matetsi Unit 2 is a 90 minute drive from Victoria Falls International Airport, there is no charter flight needed to hunt the Matetsi Units.
