Rainforest Tower Hide - Details


This is Hidephotography’s most secluded hide, built in a true rainforest environment. Just like at the other tower, we are attracting our birds simply by providing one bunch of banana every day. The undisturbed environment and the thick foliage ensure that even the most rarely photographed species pay frequent visits to this hide. Despite the dense forest vegetation, the hide is supplied with lots of light and homogenous background, because its windows are facing the opposite side of a small forest lagoon.
