The Lodge has been running since 2007 when the previous owner built and ran this most successful establishment. We, as present owners have made many substantial changes that have been noticed and reflected in the growth of the business.
This business has had a complete makeover in the last 3 years, with increases in occupancy and added the Restaurant which has proved a great success. The Restaurant caters for all tastes from carnivores to vegans; with a wide variety of dishes from around the world and Zambia, this is reflected in the turnover. ( accounts will be open for inspection to interested parties.)
The Lodge consists of 5 double or Twin bedded chalets,and a new Family chalet that sleeps 6 all with private facilities, air conditioning, fans, fridges and TV. We have a swimming pool outside with separate toilet block. The whole area is surrounded with fruit trees - mango, paw paw, Guava, mulberry, pineapple, water berry, lemons and orange - with grounds laid to lawns and ornamental beds. Parking for about 8 cars, with security fence and night guard. Owners /Managers accommodation with a 4 bedroom house on site.
The Lodge is situated just 6 minutes from the International airport, 12 minutes drive from the famous "Victoria Falls " - one of the seven natural wonders of the world - and just 3 minutes drive ( 15 minutes walk ) from the town center.
The whole area is a safe place to work and live, with lots to see and do all the year round.
Green Tree Lodge has just become the highest rated small Hotel/Lodge in Livingstone by Booking .com and a. high rating with Trip adviser.
The reason for sale is genuine as the present owner wishes to retire after nearly 52 years in the industry and let someone younger stamp their mark on it.
The price quoted is open to near offers.
The total refurbishment is now complete to all the chalets. A generator has been purchased and is now working. These additions do NOT affect the original price.

If interested, please contact the seller through the form on this page.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

We have recently opened our Family chalet that will sleep 6. Having so many families visit this area we identified the need. This has been well booked since opening.

Competition / Market:

Many small Lodges and B & B's in the immediate area, but NOT to the standard of Green Tree as we demanded that this Lodge must have good ratings. This is reflected in Trip Advisor as we have taken this lodge to nearly the top. Our Restaurant stands alone with what we offer, not even the big Hotels can offer this menu.

Reasons for selling:

After over 53 years in this business, I feel it's time to retire and let someone younger make their mark on Green Tree. There is scope to enlarge or expand. Sensible offers will be looked at.

365 days. 24/7 operation.
