Safari Tents as a Business?
The glamping phenomenon has been motoring across Britain, Europe and North America for several years and with it in its infancy in NZ now is the chance to get in at the start of an exciting new era of Antipodean accommodation.
Whether it is diversification for a farmer, making use of a corner of a property or using the section at the beach, this is a low cost way of creating a new business venture.
With an approximate total outlay of $40-50k for creation of a single tent with the basic necessities your ROI will depend on your chargeable rate and your occupancy levels.
The sky is the limit when it comes to how you fit out your tent, from old fashioned kiwi camping to high end luxury, boutique glam.
The quality of these tents means that by keeping them in good condition your income stream will last as well as improve for many years to come. Buy multiple tents and spread some infrastructure cost and profits increase again.
Income will vary from region to region. A beautifully appointed glamping tent will command a premium over a “nice” holiday house due to the novelty of glamping.
Opportunities for landowners to “add value” through tours, activities, farm experiences are endless.
