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!

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!
