SOME OF OUR WORK
Bush Hacking with Tony Johnstone
These 2 minute filler programs are currently being broadcast on SuperGolf and Sky Sports. The programs are hosted by a famous golfer, commentator and wildlife guru. Some say he can spot a scops owl at 100 paces…others say that warthogs run in terror when they spot him. We know him as…Tony Johnstone.
Watch as he tries to play his way out of the Kruger Park, all the while encountering a host of interesting animals, plants, insects and birds.
Sponsored by Cleveland Golf and Jock Safari Lodge, our first season was shot in the Kruger Park during early winter (May 2011).
Ranger: Lazarus Mkhonto.
DOP: Dirk Mostert.
Made possible by Antonij Rupert Wyne and Jock Safari Lodge, this season was filmed in mid-summer (January 2012). The heat allowed us to capture some fascinating insects.
Additional camera & editing: Lex Dominguez
The final season was filmed at Shamwari Game Reserve in spring (November) 2015, the perfect season for birds.
Ranger: Frans Khomontsho
