The Garden Route & Klein Karoo – An Ideal Film Destination

The Garden Route and Klein Karoo, stretches from Witsand to Plettenberg Bay, right around to Oudtshoorn as well as Calitzdorp and Ladismith on the infamous R62. Situated about 280km from Cape Town, and is one of South Africa’s richest treasures, where you can lose yourself in nature, between majestic mountain ranges, breath-taking views, a natural garden of rich, colourful vistas, with valleys and lakes, rivers and forests, with miles upon miles of beautiful, white sandy beaches and a brilliant blue coastline.

The Garden Route and Klein Karoo comprise locations for TV, Film and Commercials, and is ideally placed to not only manage any overflows from other filming destinations but to become a major player in its own right in the industry.

The Garden Route and Klein Karoo has a competitive advantage with their multiple localities and is able to package and offer a wide range of locations (forests, vineyards, mountains, farms, tree houses, tented camps, dams, rivers, beaches, airport, railway, game lodges, caves, heritage sites and buildings, industrial areas, which is broader than just its internationally recognised natural advantages).

A range of services are available and on offer in the district to assist the industry in producing high-quality films in the Garden Route district.

Knysna and its beautiful forests are home to untouched fauna and flora.
Whale watching in Mossel Bay is a popular activity amongst locals and tourists.

A policy framework and permitting system were developed and are in place to facilitate, regulate and standardise filming within the Garden Route district to provide for the issuing of film permits, filming in environmentally sensitive areas, the use of municipal services during filming and to provide for filming in public areas.
