Located by the seaside in stunning Port Elizabeth, South Africa, the Humewood golf course is a genuine seaside Links, ranked as one of South Africa’s top 20 golf courses and boasts as holding the prestige of being the only true links course in Africa.
Sadly, I don’t play golf. But after shooting their video profile, I think I should definitely give it a bash!
Humewood golf course has one of the world’s most difficult links courses and has hosted the South African open 5 times and the African Amateur 10 times, being ranked the number 10 golf course in South Africa.
There have been some famous names which have graced the greens and fairways of this course, including Denis Watson, Tony Johnstone and Ernie Els amongst others. I especially liked their gorgeous clubhouse!
If you’re looking for a great evening hotspot in Port Elizabeth, The Music Kitchen is my personal recommendation! Known for their Wednesday nights all-you-can-eat ribs and prawns, this is one of the coolest spots I’ve been to in a while. And don’t just take my word for it – ask any local you meet. The Music Kitchen is on Facebook so if you like what you see, join their online family HERE. They’re also on Twitter, so follow them HERE. What’s great about this place is that they provide a platform for original artists to perform. If you’re a muso in the area of Port Elizabeth, you can apply to perform and you’ll join their wall of fame which features many famous names in the South African music industry. Here’s what we shot for them:
Skybok covered events for Rotary PE West as part of their “Medieval Festival”. It’s a whole weekend of festivities themed around the Middle Ages and it’s hosted at Victoria Park in Port Elizabeth. Their “Royal Banquet” is on a Friday night where everyone arrives dressed up in costumes from the Middle Ages. There’s a dinner and lots of entertainment! During the Saturday, they host an entire day filled with arts, crafts and activities that people used to play during Medieval times.
Here are the profiles of this awesome outdoor two-day event:
Such a gorgeous place we filmed in Knysna, South Africa! Pezula Resort Hotel & Spa is a huge resort here in South Africa in the Western Cape.

What a pleasure to shoot Seaview Lion Park here in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. We arrived in the morning and the weather was perfect. The animals were friendly, and I especially loved the tigers. They were very passive and playful… very sociable creatures. Here’s the final video profile, enjoy!
