Rainforest Tower Hide - Details

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.
