Movies & Filming


Hoedspruit Reptile Centre has over the past 30 years gained an enormous amount of experience with wrangling reptiles and other specialised animals in the filming industry.  We have worked with many prominent film companies and presenters from around the world and are well known for providing a quality service.  Our curators and animal handlers take pride in their work and will never allow an animal to be harmed in any way or managed unethically. We are also qualified and experienced in ensuring appropriate health and safety standards are followed and adhered to. A safety briefing is conducted each time venomous or dangerous animals are used so that the crew is aware of what they are working with.  We will always have a handler watching over crew members while animals are being filmed.  The following list of animals are generally available for filming but please                             should you have any other specialised requests or needs:

  • Snakes - Indigenous and Exotic

  • Lizards - Including Chameleons, Monitor Lizards etc.

  • Crocodiles
