Africade Productions is Southern Africa’s leading production company for Reality TV shoots. With a track record of producing the biggest Reality formats on the planet, we have learned to understand the “special needs” of Reality TV.

Our worldwide network in the Reality TV Family supports our quest to continuously be the “go to” production company for Reality Shows in Southern Africa.

Its due to our deep passion and understanding for producing Reality TV , that our clients are getting us involved in the creative development and early stages of preproduction.

Our reputation and happy return clientele is testament to all of the above.
