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.


• Conveniently located
• Nice, clean rooms
• Doesn't have the style and luxury of the more expensive hotels
• Great pool and bar area
• Pretty Gardens

The Simujinga Restaurant
The Simujinga restaurant (Rainbow in the local Tonga dialect) with its enticing African aura and blending in of Western & African cuisine.  Enjoy a Buffet Dinner whilst watching traditional dancers on the pool terrace.

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

Customer Feedback

Brilliant service and so helpful
by Sally (Blisworth, U.K.)
I stumbled across Victoria Fall Guide by accident, but I am so glad I did. Tony and Boo were so helpful, advising us on the best activities for us as I have mobility issues, and arranging our itinerary and booking everything. I had no worries about using them, or sending a very large payment to someone I didn’t know. Everything they booked for us was so well organised, pick ups on time, knowledgeable and friendly guides, clean transport. We did the walking tour of the falls, the sunset dinner cruise, full day at Chobe, the team, lion encounter and the helicopter and every single one was faultless. We were also due to do the lunar rainbow but unfortunately it was cancelled, however boo arranged the refund immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are so grateful to them for making our special holiday even more so.
