Cape Town Legends is a creative project with the express purpose of showcasing some of the Mother City’s most renowned and inspiring residents. Here we bring you the city’s best innovators, artists, trailblazers and game changers – with the idea of introducing them and the work that they do as inspiration for others.

The project is a long standing dream of Travel Designer’s, Ozzy Yerlikaya, a consummate connecter of beautiful people and a recognised travel evangelist who has an established reputation for the magic that he brings to the local industry. Having had the honour of working with these larger than life characters over the past years, and taking their stories as the gift that drove him to follow his passion, this is a way of saying thank you and giving back.

We invite you to get to know our Cape Town Legends, to watch their videos and read their words – and mostly to seek out the Legend in you.


Here at the southwestern most tip of Africa we find a melting pot of people influencing change and altruistically improving the lives of others though their work, art, music and literature. Should you like to nominate somebody doing remarkable work that is changing the face of the city, and inspiring its residents, please let us know.
