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.

The ethos of Legend is to extract the spirit from its African surroundings and imprint it into everything that it offers.
