Castaways play for title of sole survivor in breathtaking Philippines.
It’s true! DStv has confirmed that the sixth season of Survivor South Africa is being filmed in the picturesque Republic of the Philippines. The show’s full title going forward will be Survivor South Africa: Philippines.
The Philippines is no stranger to this type of television production, as various locations in its Southern provinces have played host to previous international Survivor franchises, including, most recently, the American, French and Israeli versions of this hit global series.
The diverse and exquisite landscape of the Philippines boasts some of the world’s top ranking beaches, and is known for being a tropical paradise, home to exotic creepy crawlies living in its dense forests, as well as incredible marine life inhabiting its azure oceans.
The South African Survivor SA castaways will be exposed to the beauty of thousands of islands connected by Pacific waters, each one home to these distinct forests and bays which are teeming with indigenous wildlife, both beautiful and dangerous.
“The location of every Survivor series is a crucial part of the show,” says M-Net’s Head of Publicity Lani Lombard. “It stands alongside the castaways as a silent character in its own right – providing the stunning and punishing backdrop against which all of the triumphs and betrayals of this strategically gruelling game play out.”
Survivor South Africa: Philippines has been in production since December 2017 and will be broadcast on M-Net every Thursday night from 3 May 2018.
