HIDE BIRD-PHOTOGRAPHY

We use fixed and portable professional hides at various areas, some in or nearby at our own bird-rich Kondor EcoLodge garden, either at small drinking or feeding stations or at our pond. We also have our own Bee-eater Wall, but there are plenty of other sites to use at different parts of the Kiskunsag National Park as well.

At the below list of hides we mention just a few highlight species. More complete lists can be found further below or please ask for more details!

If you would like to combine our lowland area with a hilly region, such as Bukk Hills which offers different species, please let us know!

Please check the following albums with Bird & Wildlife Photographs made by some of our guests:
