Matetsi Unit 3
The Matetsi Safari Area situated in North Western Zimbabwe close to the famous Victoria Falls is Zimbabwe's oldest and best known hunting safari area. The game rich Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe's largest totaling some 13,000 square kilometers, together with Matetsi Safari Area, Kazuma National Park, Zambezi National Park and Pandamasui Forest area all combine to form one of Africa's largest un-spoilt, wilderness areas over 20,000 square km in extent.
Unit 3 is located in the prime location which forms the corner bounded in the south by Hwange National Park, west by the Zimbabwe/Botswana international border, the north by Matetsi Unit 2 and the East by Matetsi Unit 5.
Unit 3 consistently produces large elephant and averages over 50 pounds a side each season, bulls in excess of 65 pounds are regularly taken. Buffalo and lion are numerous whereas leopard are more difficult. Matetsi is famous for producing world class sable and Unit 3 is no exception, other species in abundance are kudu, waterbuck, zebra, giraffe, impala, hyena and warthog. In addition to the 'big game' hunting, clients can also take a day off to enjoy an afternoon of superb bird shooting, particularly - guineafowl, francolin and sandgrouse.
Access to Unit 3 is from Victoria Falls International Airport a relatively short 1 hours drive from the concession. This in turn makes for side trips to the Victoria Falls for sight seeing and shopping easy to arrange.
