Amazing Experience!

Such an amazing experience and learned a lot in a short space of time on the film program. The team who run the program are fantastic and make sure that everything runs smoothly. A real privilege to get so close to the animals and learn so much about them. In addition to the actual course, it's a great opportunity to meet like minded people and experience South Africa.

Excellent month in South Africa

I had the best month of my life on the wildlife filmmaking course with Africa Media. We had access to great equipment and were taught how to use it. The 9 days spent on safari at Scotia were incredible. Some improvements could be made to WiFi/ housing facilities but we were able to go on some great activities in the local area!

I'll never forget that rhino moment deep down in the bushveld.  Anyone with a passion for film and wildlife, get your monies together and spend a month in the bushveld
