The Rainbow Tourism Group says its hotel occupancy was 31% last year and 24% in 2020.

RTG is a major player in the Zimbabwean tourism industry. The group operates four distinct quality hospitality brands in the region.

Apparently, the company says it lost the equivalent of 5 trading months due to lockdowns.

Following the lockdowns and restrictions in international travel world over, the group’s major source of business was the domestic market driven by city hotels.

On the outlook, the company projects a growth in the industry from conferencing.

Meanwhile, the group is part of the RTG Virtual which is a partnership platform between RTG and selected hotels in Zimbabwe in areas where RTG has few or no properties.

This innovative one stop shop, allows RTG to process bookings on behalf of quality approved local partners.

Partner hotels can be found in the Eastern Highlands, Masvingo, Hwange, Kariba, Victoria Falls, Harare and its environs.

The group says this foot print will continue to grow. RTG Virtual offers guests, wider choice, convenience and a competitive product portfolio through the one stop shop RTG Central Reservations.
