Overview

Victoria Falls Rainbow Hotel is a contemporary, mid-range hotel located in the Zimbabwean town of Victoria Falls, north western Zimbabwe. A member of the Zimbabwean Rainbow Tourism Group portfolio, the hotel sits in a tranquil, wooded area adjacent to Zambezi National Park, and boasts a pool, two restaurants, and a rooftop viewing area where guests can observe the cascading spray or ‘Mosi oa Tunya’ from the mighty Victoria Falls, a short drive away.

Set within tranquil gardens a short walk from the centre of town and 5 km from the falls, the hotel blends contemporary architecture with Moorish influences. Guest spaces include a pleasant outdoor pool with a ‘swim-up’ bar. The hotel’s Simujinga, or ‘Rainbow’ restaurant overlooks the pool area, and presents a fusion of African and western dishes, whilst the Kraal restaurant specialises in Zimbabwean cuisine, with diners regularly entertained by traditional Zimbabwean dancing.

The hotels offers 88 contemporary rooms and suites, all with ensuite bathrooms including bath or shower. Each room has a double or twin beds draped with mosquito nets, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, phone, and TV. All rooms feature sliding glass doors opening onto an enclosed balcony, some with superb views of Victoria Falls. A number of larger suites are available, each with a separate lounge area, and minibar.

A variety of activities is available locally, all of which can be arranged through the hotel’s tour desk. A breath-taking helicopter flight, or ‘Flight of Angels’ over the iconic Victoria Falls, is an unforgettable experience. Also on offer are guided tours of the falls, game drives, and elephant rides, whilst adrenalin junkies can enjoy bungee jumping and white water rafting.

Children are extremely welcome at the hotel, and several family suites are available. A baby sitting service can be provided, subject to prior arrangement.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
