Along with the specialized vehicle, Jaci’s Lodges is an incredibly unique photographic location, especially due to the inclusion of the Terrapin Hide. This partially submerged, large mammal hide is situated in the center of our waterhole and gives animals unrestricted access. Only guests of Jaci’s Lodges can make use of it’s unique point of view 24-hours a day. There are no distracting spot lights to interfere with the animals natural behavior, however specialized low-impact lights are available for those that want little better look at the visitors during low-light times. Short and long exposure techniques from the hide are an absolute must!
