Lodge For Sale in Arusha, Arumeru District, Tanzania
Profitable Lodge For Sale
Asking Price: $1,590,000 USD (Negotiable)
We are selling a lovely family owned lodge/hotel that has been in our family for three generations. The business was originally established by my grandfather as an animal orphanage and game sanctuary. The family home and sanctuary soon became a popular destination for those visiting Tanzania. Small cottages where built to accommodate guests and as time passed the family home became a small lodge. The animal orphanage is no longer taking on animals but a few orphaned animals do remain in the game sanctuary which adjoins the lodge. The animal orphanage can be restarted.
Sitting on 12 acres of land, the lodge has 23 rooms spread around the property. The rooms have been built over three generations and range in size and style which creates a truly unique atmosphere. The old farm house has been turned into a restaurant and bar area which can seat approximately 50 guests. That said, most guests prefer to sit outside under the large mango trees where they can enjoy sipping on a glass of wine while looking at the animals in the sanctuary.
The Lodge is located on the slopes of Mount Meru, next to Usa River with a view of Mount Kilimanjaro (between the large trees), 35 minutes drive from Kilimanjaro International Airport on the way to the tourist gateway of Arusha. Most visitors use Arusha as the starting point to visit the Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Creater and Mount Kilimanjaro.
The lodge is in great condition, one of the top rated (on Tripadvisor) hotels in Arusha and has a healthy profit. The new owner can expect to have their investment back within 5/6 years. We are a very small family and we have decided to focus our energy on another family business.
CORVID 19 has effected the business in 2020, fortunately most of our bookings have postponed their trip to next year and we expect to have a successful 2021. In 2019 we had over 7,000 bednights with only 21 rooms. Two additional rooms were added in 2020 to cater for the almost 8,000 bednights we expected in 2020. CORVID will pass and we see a bright future for this business.
Tanzania adopted the British land ownership system of Title Deed with a right of occupancy. The company/family has unencumbered Title Deeds for the property.
Its not everyday a unique and profitable business is put on the market. Normally businesses are sold because they don't make a profit, but here is an exception to the rule.
