Side by Side Pro Hunting Safaris

Matetsi Safari Area

Welcome to the Matetsi Safari Area Hunting Areas

The Matetsi Units are free range, fair chase hunting areas within an hour’s drive of the famous Victoria Falls, unfenced, wild and renowned for quality dangerous game, sable and a variety of plains game.

Some of the units are located directly adjoining the Hwange National Park by an unfenced boundary. The famous Hwange National park is a 5000 square mile wildlife reserve home to over 60 000 elephant, countless buffalo, abundant lion and leopard and a myriad of plains game.

With natural springs and permanent water in the rivers, the units have natural drinking water all year around making them a hot spot to animals from the adjoining Hwange National Park.

The rolling hills and valleys are a perfect area for the resident elephants, buffalos, lions, leopards, sable, roan and a whole host of plains game. Besides the resident populations that live within the units, there are also migratory animals moving into and out of the units at all times of the year.

The units are a short hours drive from Victoria Falls International Airport. There is no charter flight needed to hunt in the Matetsi Units.

Side by Side Safaris will offer you the services of their very experienced hunters with years of dangerous game hunting experience to be your host. The owners Amin and Amir Turk, made up of father and son, will endeavour to be your personal Professional Hunters, both of whom are dedicated to making your safari a lifetime experience with a personal touch. 

The camps are comfortable, offering you electricity backed up by generators. All camps have wifi facilities. Depending on the unit you book, there will also be a swimming pool for the hot summer days. We provide a variety of great cuisines through our qualified chefs. International quality wines, beers and soft drinks are always provided for in camp. 

Please feel absolutely free to get in touch with Amin or Amir for a safari of a lifetime.
