Nambutu embassy - John Watling's Destillery, the Bahamas

After escaping Bond through the construction site, Mollaka ends up at the Nambutu Embassy in Madagascar.

Even the scene where Mollaka runs up to the guards by the entrance gate was filmed on the same location as the rest of the exterior of the embassy action, namely at the John Watling's rum destillery, in Nassau, Bahamas. Formerly known as the Buena Vista estate in central Nassau.

The entrance gate to the Buena Vista estate is located on Delancy Street, only a few hundred meters from downtown Nassau. The gate posts are still the same as in the film even though most of the estate has been renovated and is no longer recognisable. The trees seen in the film in front of the embassy building however, can still be found on location.
