The Legend group was established in 1999 by Peet and Mart Cilliers and Roy Tucker with the aim of introducing South Africans and international business and leisure tourists to the country’s numerous, diverse attractions.
The Legend portfolio encompasses the rich diversity of South Africa, her people, culture, breath-taking scenery and abundant bird, marine and animal life. The group features safari and country lodges, coastal hotels, cultural villages and shebeens in South Africa as well as Mozambique and Botswana.
Recognizing that the business travel, conference and incentives markets are continually evolving, the group keeps up to date with new trends and developments. Legend strives to maintain the level of service, standards and core attractions that draw travellers to its properties and endeavours to incorporate new venues, attractions, facilities and activities into its portfolio to ensure it meets and exceeds expectations.
Diversity of product offering is important and Legend offers a varied number of indoor and outdoor venues to suit a variety of needs and budgets – from intimate, high-level power meetings to conferences for medium to large groups of people, themed evenings and adrenalin-inducing teambuilding activities, Legend caters for all.

Legend Hospitality Group will be highly profitable, providing a constant Legendary experience to all guests, and achieve this by looking after the people in the organisation who share the company’s vision.
To provide a truly Legendary experience for all
Legend has an internal staff wellness programme called “Pride of Legends”. The objective of this program is to ensure that every person who enters the Resort is treated to a “Legendary Experience” by every staff member they come into contact with, regardless of their title or position within the company. This program is a platform to ensure that service levels are consistent and that each employee understands their role in the experience itself.
However, this “Legendary Experience” is not limited to guests. This program further aims to ensure that all employees treat each other with respect. It is also an opportunity to unify the team, across all units/departments, and ensure that a holistic view is created, one of service and dedication.
As we all know, an effective program includes recognition and reward – and this is done in the form of monthly and quarterly awards for achievers on all levels as well as via the internal newsletter, “Footsteps of our Pride”, which is brought out quarterly.
Legend is a family business, and this strong culture seeps through the organization to our employees who are all part of the Legend family. Like a family, we expect loyalty, honesty, transparency and team work from all our employees – not only to the company, but to our valued guests as well.
As Legend has grown as a company, we have embraced the vibrancy of South Africa and her diversity, not only in our choice of properties for our portfolio, but in the teams who run them.
Our middle to top management positions comprises of 25% black managers, of which 25% of that figure is made up of black female management. Whilst we strive to increase this number, our constant improvement in growing our team into leadership roles makes for a positive future for the Legend Group.
