If you ask anyone from Port Elizabeth, South Africa, what the longest-running & most popular nightclub is, they’ll probably point to Castros. We filmed their video profile and shot it during a very busy student night – great! Enjoy!

Port Elizabeth, Restaurants

Charlie Superstar


No Comments

Charlie Superstar is a fantastic restaurant chain in Port Elizabeth, the main “Charlie Superstar Pizzeria” being along the popular “Stanley Street” Strip in Richmond Hill. It’s famous for it’s pizzas and pastas. It’s in a very pretty spot, so people tend to come in the early evenings for a bite and a glass of wine.

They also have a branch along the beachfront in the Summerstrand Village, which specializes in pizza & pasta also. And the last one in Richmond Hill is more a bistro & bar. Enjoy!

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!

Points of Interest, Port Elizabeth

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:

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!

Cape Town, Hotels

The Mount Nelson Hotel


No Comments

Skybok’s team had the pleasure of filming Mount Nelson’s video profile here in Cape Town, South Africa.

It’s one of my favourite venues we’ve had the pleasure of profiling.

The hotel is home to many international tourists, including movie stars and travelling politicians.

Along with its high teas, it’s well-known for its brand new Planet Bar and its many ballrooms.

Shooting this was very exciting – the staff were extremely friendly and while doing it we got to witness a wedding they were having in their beautiful gardens.

For best viewing quality, make sure to set the viewing settings to 1080p HD by clicking on the cog at the bottom right-hand corner of the video below.

The reason this is one of my favourites is because The Mount Nelson Hotel offers a large variety of services to its guests – it acts as a wedding venue, a function venue, a conference venue and not to mention its fantastic spa!

I record all my voice overs with professional sound engineer Frank Smuts.

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? ;)

For more photos Skybok took on the day, click HERE.

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