Victoria Falls Rainbow Hotel
Great value and a prime location make the Victoria Falls Rainbow Hotel a popular choice.
Moorish in design, Victoria Falls Rainbow Hotel offers you value for money in a great location. The hotel is close enough to the magnificent falls to give rooftop visitors a view of the rain forest and the spray from this awe-inspiring waterfall, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
With 88 rooms ranging from deluxe suites and family rooms, to double and twin options - all air-conditioned with en-suite bath and shower - your preferences and budget are well catered for. Each room has its own balcony so you can step outside and enjoy the hotel’s picturesque setting.
Unassuming and comfortable as it is, the Rainbow Hotel is not a luxury option. There are several luxury lodges and hotels in Vic Falls, like Stanley and Livingstone, Tongabezi Lodge and Sussi Lodge and Chuma Villas, if five-star is more your style; but if it's good value and a decent night's rest you want, the Rainbow Hotel is an excellent choice.
Dine in the a la carte restaurant with its choice of western and local dishes. Be entertained by the energetic Umbane We Zulu dancers, accompanied by their traditional music. Enjoy sunny days and romantic nights around the swimming pool complete with its own Swim n' Sip bar where waiters are always on hand with a refreshing cocktail.
The activities at Victoria Falls, varied as they are, make this a destination in its own right. Adventurous types will find white water rafting on the Zambezi River below the falls an exhilarating and suitable terrifying experience. For those who prefer calmer pleasures, sunset cruises on the Zambezi above the falls with sightings of elephants and hippos are a must.
Take an early morning or evening game drive accompanied by a highly knowledgeable guide. Walk side by side with playful adolescent, unrestrained lion cubs of the Shearwater Pride, take a flight over Vic Falls for a unique view of the spectacular panorama. Don't forget though, that you have to take a walk through the rain forest to see the actual falls where the spray is so forceful you'll require an outsize umbrella.
