A unique property of Moorish architecture conveniently located near town and 2km from the Victoria Falls. The Victoria Falls Rainbow Hotel offers a spectacular view of the rumbling mist, mosi-oa-tunya, meaning "the More smoke that thunders". Enjoy a cocktail at the only Swim and Sip bar in town and efficient and friendly service. Less
