There is an enormous demand locally and internationally for wildlife and landscape photographs and footage for film, television, books, advertising etc.

This demand has resulted in national parks under SANParks management being inundated with requests for commercial filming or photography permits.

National Parks are the pride of a country and SANParks has been tasked to manage certain of the country’s natural and cultural heritage. Conservation of these areas and their contents is our primary mandate. Showcasing this country’s natural heritage and beauty to the world is also a consideration, but never at the cost of conservation.
