Tourvest commits to East Africa investment

Tourvest East Africa’s Lemala Wildwaters Lodge in Uganda.

Tourvest East Africa says it plans to invest in two further properties in Tanzania over the next five years and to extend its presence to Kenya, given the tourism potential of the East African area.

Tourvest East Africa owns the Lemala Collection in Uganda and Tanzania which comprises the Ngorongoro, Ewanjan, Mara and Ndutu tented camps, Mpingo Ridge, Kuria Hills and Lemala Nanyukie Lodge – all in Tanzania; as well as Wildwaters Lodge in Uganda.

Tourvest has spend about US$14 million on a campaign to uplift the quality of its properties. At the same time, it has expanded the Lemala portfolio through the addition of Lemala Mpingo Ridge in Tanzania’s Tarangire National Park and Lemala Nanyukie in the central Serengeti, while adding eight new game drive vehicles to its fleet and refurbishing the Wildwaters Lodge. It is also in the process of constructing a new tented and overland camp within an offset area of a conservation bloc in the Kalagala Falls area in Uganda.
