We have 27 en-suite chalets and 20 riverside campsites with power points, ablution blocks, hot water and grass areas. There are 84 bird species and two game parks nearby, Mahango and Buffalo parks. In the parks you can see four of the big 5. We do fishing charters.

We do boat trips on the river to Popa Falls, you can see hippos, crocodiles and birds. Guided village walks to the local people. Bird watching, fishing, swimming in our pool or relaxing on our sun deck complete the menu. A restaurant and bar facilities available.

          Although this resort comes from yesteryear it had a nice setup as far as the bar and restaurant is concerned. We appreciated that we could fish from the owners boat that was moored on the river bank. I had a stroke of luck catching a big barbel from there much to the delight of all the German guests who enjoyed taking some photos. The tented accommodation is in a horrific state and should rather be retracted until renovations has been completed. It was by far the worst accommodation that we stayed in on our trip and detracts from what could have been a great resort.

          Me and my wife recently travel through Namibia, Chobe and Botswana and stayed in various lodges but Rainbow was the worst. Last 700 metres to Rainbow not motor vehicle friendly middle centre of road very high. Arriving at 16.00 hours with 38 degrees Celsius, no gold water or ice available, no electric kettle in chalet, no chairs to sit on, nothing in chalet to cool of any drinks or water, no bin in chalet, not semi disadvantage friendly from Chalet to Restaurant cement path very uneven and rough I have tried to drive to the restaurant from the chalet but the road was also not motor vehicle...

          We only stayed one night at the Rainbow River Lodge but could have stayed longer. The food was great and the location just about perfect!

          This is really a rustic camp, the best of all is that I had booked well in advance for two chalets,and the day we arrived they only had two "rooms" available. I think they chased the sevants out to accommodate us.we refused there alternate arrangements and they then booked us in at another camp which was excellent. Looking back we are so glad that they were full.
