Dear everyone on the Forum,

I am looking for some information regarding investment and property purchase in Tanzania.

I am currently just starting my search to find a suitable lodge for purchase on the island Of Zanzibar. I'm looking for a beach lodge on the north of the island and possibly a smaller lodge in Stone town. With the plan of buying a safari lodge on the mainland on the future.

Firstly I am British and was looking for any advice regarding foreign investment and visa issues etc before I go and visit the embassy.

How is the property market moving in Tanzania? Obviously from my research I have seen investment increases, are these predicted by locals to continue to rise?

The tourism market is obviously the backbone of my search and hopeful income. Zanzibar seams from an outsiders point of view to be very much on a boom at the moment with a lot of development happening since I was there 4 years ago. Is there any issue with supply outstripping demand or is the market very healthy on the island?

I understand that like many African countries the property laws mean that property is leasehold. Are there ever any issues with extending leases?

As I said I am very early into my search and any advice positive or negative would be very much appreciated.

Thanks again.

Joe

Dear Joe,
Thank you very much for your email.
To invest in Toursim is a good idea especially in Zanzibar.Zanzibar is comming up rapily in this industry and most of sites have been taken over by investors.
I do work and live in Zanzibar,to get a lodge to buy is very expensive and difficult to get it,it is better to buy a plot and build your own Lodge or Hotel,because some small hotels owned by local people and were built in a old plan so you have to destroy all and build in a new style which it costs alot,also sizes are not enough for modern investors.
I do have some recommended beach plots you can visist on the website www.#####.com.
In stone towm most of Building ranges from US$ 80,000 to US$100,000
Leasing period can be renewed and extended.
Also visit ZIPA web(Zanzibar Investment Promotion Agency) for invesros information.
Their web is www.zanzinet.org/zanzibar/economy/vitega_uchumi.html
I can assit to have some clarification on ZIPPa procces,
More details,write to classictelecom@gmail.com
Regards,
