Avalon Media Africa

Avalon Media Africa, founded in 2016, is a full in-house production company working with the newest technology available both in production and post-production. 

We strive to bring the wonders of the natural world to screens around the world, working with broadcaster like PBS, NatGeo, Discovery, Animal Planet & DirecTV.

Avalon is based in the heart of the South African Bushveld, surrounded by the largest reserves in the country. Due to our location we specialise in African wildlife, but our crew has extensive experience with various species all over the globe. 

We are a family based company of husband and wife, both experienced wildlife filmmakers. For larger productions we hire experienced freelance wildlife filmmakers who have been tried and tested to produce the highest quality standards. When we are not busy filming our own productions, our crew and equipment is still available for freelance hire. 

From concept to distribution Avalon Media Africa delivers outstanding, compelling, cinematic natural history documentaries.
