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 ponds. 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, for example Bukk Hills which offers different species such as Ural Owl, White-backed-, Gray-headed and Black Woodpeckers, Collared Flycatcher and many more, please let us know!
