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!

Shooting the famous ‘Highlander’ in Grahamstown for Skybok was an absolute delight.

It’s a fantastic spot to come for a drink and a meal in the evening and socialize with friends or simply watch the latest sporting event.

They serve fantastic meals and I personally think it’s a winning spot to hire out for a function you are having.

Our ‘Crew’ for the night!

Click HERE for official pictures Skybok took of The Highlander, as well as The Lowlander downstairs.

The Lowlander is also a bar and space for people to have private functions.

We shot the Highlander during the day and actually came back to get The Lowlander that night – where we were met by a massive 21st party which we soon joined in with after we shot!

The whole Highlander venue lies adjacent to Saint Andrews College, and I have a feeling this spot is very popular for birthday parties and special occasions celebrated by students!

Fully licensed and with wheelchair access, the Lowlander also opens up (just like the Highlander above it) to an area where smokers can go.

It was absolute madness and loads of fun.

We took some hilarious pictures – see them HERE.

Hope you enjoy its video profile!

If you have a place you would like us to film, get in touch with me!

I always like to blog about the more interesting places we shoot for Skybok.net……..and, well, there’s no doubt that Zingela Archery in Jeffrey’s Bay is one of them!

It’s hidden along the R102 between Humansdorp and Jeffrey’s Bay in the Eastern Cape, South Africa, and is a very cool spot once you arrive.

I was certainly introduced to a whole new world I never knew existed when we came to shoot their video profile for them.

A fantastic place and a pleasure filming it!

I’ve come to learn that it is, in fact, a huge sport with a massive amount of people who love it.

In my opinion it’s a nice hobby and certainly after filming these people doing it, I paid more attention to the archery at The Olympics!

Here are some other blog posts about Zingela Archery from popular blogs:

Algoa FM is the the biggest commercial radio station from the Garden Route to the Wild Coast on 94 to 97fm.

I love the place. It’s chic & fresh and it felt rejuvenating to walk through the station filming.

We got to meet one of their most popular DJs, Lance Du Plessis, and what a fantastic guy! Easy-going and professional, he does a great job on air and has a successful reputation and a big following here in the Bay.

Everything went very smoothly on the day…. we got Lance doing his show and also some really nice shots around the station.

We didn’t get to shoot their boardroom as there was a meeting there on the day, but you can check out my blog post HERE for some snaps of it as well as some snaps I took around the station while we shot.

In my opinion everyone working there is fun-loving and hard-working.

I love the position of the station….The Boardwalk here in PE….it’a a very beautiful complex right on the beachfront. It must be a fantastic place to go to work every day! They also have a very cool website – check it out by clicking HERE.

Me and my brother Dane.

The Music Kitchen Port Elizabeth Restaurants Music Bars If you’re looking for a great evening hot spot 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:

The Rotary Medieval Festival

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:
