History of Rainbow Tourism Group
RTG was formed in 1992 as part of the Government’s commercialization programme. This dynamic and visionary company rose within six years from three hotels units and a tour operator company in 1992, to become Zimbabwe’s second largest hospitality chain by 1998.
Incorporated in 1991 as Zimbabwe Tourism Investments Group (Private) Limited (ZTTG) (Registration Number 4880/91), the Group assumed control of the commercial business and assets of the Zimbabwe Tourism Investments Group, as a parastatal, then responsible for the promotion of tourism in the country.
In 1994, the ZITG was renamed Rainbow Tourism Group (Private) Limited, and entire entity became a public company and listed on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange on 01 November 1999 after the Government offered 70% shareholding to institutional investors, employees and members of the public. Today, RTG owns quality business units, establishing itself as the fastest growing company in Zimbabwe’s tourism industry. It has successfully positioned itself as a leader in offering Zimbabwean cultural hospitality. In order to remain competitive, the Group has adopted a branding strategy so as to ensure a close and sustainable relationship between the brands and their customers.
