John 'Chick' Legh
05.02.1951 – 07.01.2021

It is with deep sadness that we confirm the passing of our founder, John 'Chick' Legh. A pioneer, a maverick, a friend.

Chick, as he was affectionately known, was respected, admired and loved by those who knew him and had the pleasure of working with him. Rare Earth Retreats was born out of his passion for this country and its exceptional places. The company, along with many others that he started and grew under his influence, are testament to his sharp mind, tenacity and ambition. Chick's vision has ensured the preservation of some of South Africa's wildest and most beautiful places.

We will remember him on cool morning drives through the fever tree forests of Northern Kruger, long walks along Plettenberg Bay's white beaches and on balmy afternoons listening to the Rolling Stones in Cape Town.

Thank you for the magic Chick, for the mentorship, the hard work, the love and for creating exceptional experiences and places. Rare Earth Retreats was Chick's vision and passion and will continue his legacy.
