    I need to find a place in Africa, where we can shoot the passage of car through the tropical forest plus the small local airport.
    We plan the shoot in April – June 2009.
    I appreciate any advice.

    Dear katerina,

    If you are willing to do this film in Asia then I could provide you the location from Sri Lanka. Best tropical locations with half production cost compared to Europe. I have attached just sample of locations for your kind attention. Best Regards, Priyanga T. Kumarasiri.

    Malaysia has the oldest tropical jungles. We have a small airstrip in the jungle. It is bordering the famous National Park. Logistically fantastic. Smack into the wild jungles.

    Hi Katerina,

    You may have made your plan but we can facilitate here in Uganda where we have miles of roads running through primary and secondary equatorial rain forest. There are numerous locations for this as well as a number of small airstrips and airports.

    Warm regards,
