Welcome to Farm Africa

Farm Africa is a boutique production service company and fixer entity based in Cape Town, South Africa, from where we provide a personal and hands-on approach to stills shoots, all genres of commercial, documentary and feature film making across Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands.

Farm Africa has earned a reputation for being dedicated, experienced & creativity driven - no matter the project, we will find a solution. 

We make filming in Africa happen.

Our Experience

We have traveled and filmed throughout Africa and our local knowledge and experience helps us to provide excellent on-the-ground production support, which is invaluable when budgets and deadlines are tight.

Our back-up

Big company back-up via a joint venture with Farm Film Production ensures a seamless, smoothly run project, wherever we are on the African continent.

Hello Sailor is our vehicle for long form documentary projects, tying in with production companies in Australia, New Zealand and Ireland to produce multi-episode documentary and human interest stories around the globe. Hello Sailor currently has a number of projects in development, some of which have already taken us to numerous African countries, parts of Europe and around Australasia.

Exciting times indeed.
