Die Walskipper

I personally love the sea. I love places near the water, and when they offer light meals and drinks to go with the view, I know I’ve struck gold!

Die Walskipper” is a lovely beach bar & restaurant situated along the coast in South Africa’s Jeffrey’s Bay.

The restaurant is situated on Clapton’s Beach between Jeffreys Bay and Aston Bay where “locals” and visitors can enjoy a mouth-watering  array of seafood together with other South African dishes cooked to perfection on the coals.

It’s also a great place to have as a venue for special occasions such as weddings, office functions, birthday parties, club gatherings or any group event for which catering can be pre-arranged according to your special needs.

We shot this corporate video for the “Oh My Gosh!” Group launching in the UK. It was a pleasure doing business with them. We got some great crowd shots for the video as they were holding an event that evening, and we also got some nice interviews with prominent local faces. Enjoy!

Nanaga Farm Stall


No Comments

If you’ve never been to the  Nanaga Farm Stall………….you simply HAVE to stop and enjoy the “Nanaga Experience”. As the old saying goes; “You don’t know what you’re missing until you have had it!”

Located comfortably between rolling hills, it’s conveniently located at the intersection of three main routes, namely the N2, R10 and R72.  It lies 50km from Port Elizabeth, the Eastern Cape’s largest city.

It’s nicknamed “The Clover Leaf” because the convergence of these roads creates a clover leaf shape when viewed from the air.

If you are familiar with Nanaga, or a regular visitor, then you already know of the treasure trove of delights behind the impressive and massive front door!

We were thrilled to shoot their video profile for them, which you can check out below! They are so famous for their “Roosterbrood” – a real south african treat – not to mention their meat pies!

Coming from Cape Town I’m used to my fair share of nightlife ………….. but Friar Tucks was something else altogether!

A classic nightclub in the heart of Grahamstown, South Africa, with a massive dance floor and 2 bars, you won’t be coming home until the early hours of the morning!

It’s been voted as South Africa’s number 1 nightclub.

I absolutely loved the vibe at this venue………. it was packed with students and everyone was having a great time!

I love the music – they often have popular DJs in for the night.

Listen to DJ Skullet’s mix from when he played there in August last year:

We recently shot the video profile for Skybok of Vrede en Lust Wine Farm in Franschhoek, about an hour’s drive from Cape Town.

What a pleasure!

I’m a huge fan of their wine and this is honestly one of the most beautiful wine farms I’ve seen.

They have certainly left a lasting impression!

I actually purchased their flagship wine, The Boet Erasmus 2009, at the Good Food and Wine Fest in Cape Town – see my article on it by clicking HERE.

The history of Vrede en Lust is a story of passion, vision and resurrection, which goes as far back as 1688, when Flemish merchant Jacques de Savoye arrived at the Cape with the French Huguenots.

Absolutely love their accommodation – nice place to go for a romantic weekend away!

Am I giving you some good ideas? ;)

Take a watch of their video and see what all the fuss is about!

Cape To Cuba

With Cuban-inspired cuisine and its famous “Che Bar”, Cape-To-Cuba is a popular restuarant to tourists and certainly to a lot of locals in Kalk Bay!

Only a 30 minute drive from Cape Town, it’s always a festive destination.

Shooting a video profile for them was an absolute delight, as their colourful interior set a very fun and vibrant tone for their video.

I loved the Cuban theme with all its decor indoors & outdoors… and I can personally vouch for their Mojitos!

Apparently Che Guevara mixed the first one ever made there himself!

“North Americans don’t understand… that our country is not just Cuba; our country is also humanity.” -Fidel Castro

It’s definitely a good place for a delicious meal or a just a total party :)
