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".

Not sure about having connecting rooms but we are put in a unit next to our friends. Definitely ask for upstairs rooms if you are concerned about safety. On the other hand, I never felt unsafe when visiting Vic Falls.
