SABC Rehearsals Week 3

We’re about to head into our third episode of safariLIVE on SABC 3 and we couldn’t be more thrilled with how the show is going. Nonetheless, if it looks seamless it’s because a lot of hard work and practice has gone into getting the show just perfect for local screens. Because of this, we [...]

Creature Feature: Bathroom critters
