SANHU is fully equipped to assist in the full facilitation of production crews in the Kruger National Park and its surrounding areas

ARD / BAYERISCHER RUNDFUNK - GERMAN TELEVISION

2012 - SANHU successfully completed the three Kruger Giants productions and was finally able to view the much anticipated nest cam footage. We are excited to say that life inside the hornbill nest lived up to everyones expectations and we witnessed events that even shocked the experts!



2011
- SANHU was involved in the production of three documentaries for German Television Channel ARD with Producer Director Christian Herrmann.

These documentaries followed three of Kruger’s giants - ‘Big Tuskers’, ‘Iconic Baobabs’ and ‘Southern Ground Hornbills’.  In April we filmed ‘Big Tuskers’ in the Kruger National Park with vet and author Dr Johan Marais and ‘Baobabs’ with SANParks botanist Michele Hofmeyr. We also accompanied Johan as he vasectomised three elephant bulls. The Southern Ground Hornbills with EWT Project Coordinator Scott Ronaldson, proved to be the most challenging of the three projects, however the results from the nestcam made all the effort worthwhile.

2010 - Cheetahs of the Kgalagadi: SANHU filmed and facilitated this incredible production, Produced and Directed by Christian Herrmann for ARD German Television. It was filmed in the Kgalagadi National Park, following scientists Gus Mill’s cheetah research project.

2009 - Gorongoza National Park - Mozambique: SANHU accompanied the German Television crew as the second camera unit on this elaborate production, produced by Bayerischer Rundfunk (BR) for ARD German Television. It was filmed over four weeks in May 2009 in the beautiful Gorongoza National Park in Northern Mozambique.

Director Christian Hermann produced two one-hour documentaries that was broadcast in Germany during December 2009 to a record number of viewers

2008 - Giraffe and Mass Game Capture: SANHU facilitated the production and crew during the Giraffe and mass game capture and release at Giriyondo Border post between the Kruger National Park in South Africa and the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique.

TIGRESS PRODUCTIONS

2011 - In September SANHU were commissioned to facillitate Tigress with their National Geographic "Nature Shock" series. This time it was the mystery of the recent Blue Green Algae outbreak in the Kruger National Park that was the focus of this episode in the series. State vets, Kruger Park scientists and rangers all came together to try and prevent more deaths from this unassuming killer.

2010 - In May SANHU facilitated the UK production company Tigress, who produced a one-hour documentary for the National Geographic series “Nature Shocks”. We set up camp in the Olifants River Gorge and Massingir Dam in Mozambique where the crew filmed Kruger Park’s vets and scientists as another dramatic chapter of the crocodile deaths saga unfolded.

EUROVISION - SOCCER WORLD CUP 2010

2010 - In June Eurovision commissioned SANHU for the Soccer World Cup. We are looking forward to being part of this big event, broadcasting the news feeds to participating countries from both new soccer stadiums in Nelspruit and Polokwane.

CBBC - SAFARI 8

2009 - Following the success of Outback 8, which was viewed by 1.5 million viewers and became one of the most popular BBC children’s programs, the BBC commissioned a second series, Safari 8, which was filmed in the Kruger National Park.

The series followed four British and four South African children, between the ages of 12 and 14, who spend a month training to become ‘Rookie Rangers’ in the African bush.

SANHU facilitated the 30-strong cast & crew, filming the 13-part series during October 2009.
