Photographic Hides

Return to Photographic Lessons and Safaris

Three of the most advanced photographic bird hides in the world have been built only 45 minutes away from Thanda. These are a few of Christian Sperka’s images representing the extraordinary opportunities for bird photography at these hides.

Visit them accompanied by Christian Sperka (for advice/instructions). 

Please be aware that these hides are purpose-built for photography. The photographers sit in an eye-water-level hide behind a special one-way-visible-glass in an air-conditioned environment. They are not ideal for birders who want to observe sound and observe birds in many different settings.
