As a high-flying architect who is tuned to effective use of space, former East Londoner Bryce Henderson was inspired by his travels to launch a luggage storage facility for Cape Town’s tourism market.

Named Bag Drop, savvy service means tourists to the Mother City need not lug their baggage around with them during gaps in accommodation or transport arrangements.

Thanks to Henderson’s nifty idea, travellers can now lock their belongings into sleek orange lockers and be on their way, knowing their luggage is safely stowed while they get on with sight-seeing.

“I saw the gap for tourists that are using services like Airbnb, which are located in normal suburbs and apartment buildings that don’t necessarily offer the concierge services of a hotel,” said Henderson, 26, who matriculated from Hudson Park High before studying architecture at Nelson Mandela University. He graduated with a Master’s in architecture in Barcelona, Spain.
