Located along Jan van Riebeeck Road, Val de Vie Winelands Lifestyle Estate is located in Paarl just outside Cape Town. Known for their wines, equestrian facilities, polo club, health club and elegant properties, this is a very popular estate about 40 minutes outside of Cape Town. They host many events at the clubhouse and are also famous for having former Olympic swimming champion Ryk Neethling as their marketing director & coach at the swim school.

The Bay final.f4v_snapshot_00.24_[2012.11.14_09.36.07] The Bay Hotel Camps Bay Cape Town Skybok Video Profiling South AfricaLocated along the beachfront in Cape Town, South Africa, The Bay Hotel is one of Cape Town’s top hotels which prides itself on sterling service while offering its guests a wide range of facilities and stunning views.

Renowned as a haven for romantics, leisure is its catchword, from rejuvenating spa treatments to the convenience of a heavenly deli, unique cocktail bar and beachfront café. I personally loved their cigar lounge and bar with its cool atmosphere and breathtaking views.

You can celebrate these special events at the intimate “Celebration Table” or “Private Deck” overlooking a sapphire sea. They have fully-equipped meeting and events venues which are available to suit every occasion, including the historic “Rotunda” ballroom for glittering parties and flawless weddings.

The Bay Hotel is superbly designed with only 78 rooms and suites offering 5-star luxury in an unsurpassed setting. No less than four hotel pools with expansive sun decks offer superlative views of the Atlantic Ocean and majestic Lion’s Head.

We shot at a stunning wine bar in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. It sits along the famous “Stanley Street” strip in Richmond Hill. They offer all sorts of wines and platters. Here is their video profile!

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!

Simonsig Wine Estate

Skybok filmed the video profile for Simonsig Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Simonsig is located in the heart of the Stellenbosch wine region. Travelling there to film was such a pleasure. We got a beautiful view of the Simonsberg Mountain (after which the wine estate is named), not to mention some even more lovely shots around the estate itself. They are the only wine estate with a working wine cellar, and it was fascinating watching this process!

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:
