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, her languages, 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.
The full Legend Hospitality qualification costs R 144 000 (for the entire 18 Months). The bursaries on offer partially cover the tuition. The bursary is for R 30 000. The recipient is still required to pay the remaining R 114 000.00. You will be considered for this bursary if you are interested in gaining skills and eventually working in the hospitality industry. Candidates should have strong interpersonal skills.
