Exclusive photographic hides at Mashatu Game Reserve
Infinity Bird Hide
This hide is currently being build and should be fully operational from the 1st of December 2011.
Built safely on the side of a rocky cliff, this hide is built to blend naturally into the side of the hill. Its focus is two small pools of very shallow water. These are built at eye level, with the edge of the pools 'disappearing' into the distance creating an illusion of the water flowing into infinity. The water attracts all the seed eating birds such as violet-eared waxbills, grey headed sparrows, yellow canaries, green winged pytilias, cape turtle doves, Kalahari scrub robins, southern pied and arrow marked babblers, and grey go away birds. Of course, with the attraction of the birds you also get the raptors and you can expect little banded goshawk and little sparrow hawk. Here you can expect to capture intimate bird portraits, bird in flight images as well as those beautiful reflection photographs in the still water. All with lovely clean backgrounds.
Located 5 min drive from main camp.
Recommended lenses: 70-200 and up to 600mm.
