allows us to provide your production with:


off the beaten track

We have built many strong relationships over the years in the African conservation, wildlife and development sectors. Along the way, we’ve had the privilege of working with people from all walks of life. This means a variety of demographics in diverse communities, throughout the continent. As a result, a partnership with us means access not only to most of the popular locations, but also numerous private, remote, and little-known locations.


Our facilitation and management services during shooting as well as pre and post-production make the process a seamless one. These services include obtaining film permits, letters of invitation and in South Africa specifically, waiver letters and visa assistance for foreign crew working on productions in the country. Our trusted partners around the continent assist us in other African countries, making things less stressful for you.

Please contact us [link to contact page or pop up form] for all location-based requests. This includes travel, accommodation, sourcing production staff, equipment and gear hire, film vehicle hire, catering services, and much more!
