A new destination for the filming industry…

A world-renowned tourist area in the Western Cape of South Africa, the Garden Route boasts a remarkably diverse range of filming locations to suit the varied needs of the film, television and advertising industries.

Previously underutilised because of limitations in industry support services and production facilities, this extraordinary filming destination is now being supported and developed by Garden Route Film Studios, a one-stop production facility that is the new hub of filming activities in the area.

The studio is located in George, the area’s largest city and main administrative centre, and offers modern production facilities at a reduced cost with a wide range of fresh locations in close geographical proximity that are ideal for international or local commercials, mini-series, small films or TV films.

On the World Map.

The Garden Route is a stretch of the south-eastern coast of South Africa which extends from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to the Storms River in the Eastern Cape. The name comes from the verdant and ecologically diverse vegetation encountered here and the numerous lagoons and lakes dotted along the coast. It includes towns such as KnysnaPlettenberg Bay and Nature’s Valley; with George, the Garden Route’s largest city and main administrative centre.
