PhotoGRAPHY Hides
(work in progress)

A different way to enjoy wildlife in its own habitat is through the use of ‘hides’ or shelters designed to see without being seen. These hides are integrated into the environment to comfortably wait to see some of our wild neighbors.

This style of observation requires stealthiness and a lot of patience, since the presence of these species is not forced in any way. We strategically locate these blinds based on the terrain, our knowledge of the species and the time of day, in order to give the best possible chance of a sighting.

The presence of the “target” species is not guaranteed, but should it appear, the opportunity not only to see but to photograph it from a privileged spot will be worth the time spent.

This service is in the process of being implemented, if you want more information do not hesitate to contact us.
