Filming and Photography

Situated in the town of Stellenbosch, nestled in the foothills of the Simonsberg Mountain, Rustenberg Farm boasts a number of different looks and locations all on one property. Shoots have been hosted on the property since the 1980s and we pride ourselves on being film friendly at Rustenberg, catering to shoots of all sizes, local and international, features, commercials, and stills photography.

Our international portfolio includes National Geographic’s “Battle of Gettysburg”, “Outlander”, a number of European food product adverts,  an outdoor equipment retailer, car adverts, and a number of scenes in international feature films. Our South African portfolio includes adverts by Clicks, Truworths, Spur, and a financial services provider, as well as a children’s TV series, and an SA Tourism special shown in Nigeria, to name a few.

The location areas we are best known for include our fields and pastures, vineyards, views and vistas, manicured estate gardens, farm and external historical buildings, beautiful big trees, tree-lined avenues, farm roads, rivers and river beds, and forest locations. You can view and download a selection of our locations below.
