The medium sized Rainbow Hotel is conveniently located only 500 meters from the town centre and 1.5 kms from the Victoria Falls Rainforest entrance. It is an ideal family hotel with a lovely swimming pool and fits into the 3star bracket of hotels in Victoria Falls.

The Rainbow Hotel is part of the Rainbow Tourism Group (RTG) which owns and operates an array of Hotels and Lodges across Zimbabwe. In Victoria Falls it's sister hotel is the A Zambezi River Lodge.

Our Opinion

Rainbow hotel is conveniently located only a short walk from the town centre. This 3 Star hotel is comparable to the Kingdom, Cresta Sprayview and Elephant Hills. Its an okay hotel with nice rooms in the new wing and a lovely pool area, but for international clients we would recommend Kingdom Hotel over the Rainbow in this price bracket. However for SADC clients the Rand rate represents extremely good value and is a very appealing option.

The Rainbow Kraal Shop & Dine
Built using reeds mats, the kraal shop & dine is a place where after a long day of activities, people from all walks of life come together to relax, shop & dine and enjoy an evening filled with African Culture.

The main aim is to rekindle the evenings from long ago when our ancestors used to host the traders from overseas and give them a night filled with entertainment and feasting with game meat being the centre of the meal.

During the meal guests will be entertained by the traditional Ndebele Dancers and the Makishi from the Matonga tribe.

The Swim and Sip Bar
Unique design - the bar stools are in the swimming pool. Enjoy a cold drink while cooling yourself off as well. Open for both in-house and walk in guests. Complimentary snacks whilst enjoy a drink. Open from 1000hrs to 2200hrs.

The Summit
A roof top bar overlooking the "Smoke that Thunders" (Victoria Falls). Early morning breakfast served when the spray is at it's best. (Jan to July). Exclusive dinners and ideal cocktail party spot.

Conference Facilities - available on request

Client Testimonials

Many thanks for all your assistance. You have probably been the most responsive and helpful tour organizers I have worked with- anywhere in the world. I'll be sure to recommend you to my colleagues and friends.

All the activities lived up to the hype!
by Alex (Swaziland)
Good Afternoon Boo,
Just wanted to let you know that we are now back in Swaziland and had an incredibly fun time enjoying Victoria Falls! All the activities lived up to the hype and I would like to thank you for all your help in organising a busy but full holiday for us! Everything went smoothly from the moment we arrived to the time we left.
Also wondering where you prefer to have your reviews written?
Thanks again!
All the best

Memory I will not forget
by Sunitha
Hi Jane
Hope you are keeping well.I must say a very big thank you for all your assistance and advice for my trip. I had the most amazing time at Vic Falls, a memory I will not forget.
Thanks a million once again.

Fantastic Itinerary
by Graham & Janet (United Kingdom)
Dear Boo
We would like to offer our thanks for sorting a fantastic itinerary for our all too short visit to Vic Falls. The cruise on the Zambesi at sunset was a delight and the helicopter flight breathtaking! The pick ups were punctual and staff members were all very smiley, friendly, helpful and good company. The whole experience of the actual Falls and the town itself was outstanding.
We will return! Your company will be our first port of call. Many thanks for a very efficient service.
Best wishes
