What is the Batis Dome Hide?

The Batis Dome Hide is comfortable one-man photographic wildlife hide for getting that extra close up, relaxed shot of your favourite bird or animal. Multiple windows at varying levels and positions make it easy to capture the moment without frightening the subject. It provides a low impact means of comfortably waiting at selected spots to photograph either a chosen target species or to photograph or simply observe unobtrusively the wildlife at a particular place such as a waterhole, a place where food is put out or deep within a forest glade where certain bird or animal species are known to frequent.

Why is it useful?

A hide is not going to get you instant recognition as a professional wildlife photographer but it is going to take you some way to improving your chances of getting better close up shots of the wildlife in your area as well in any other area you might choose to locate your subjects in. It will still take loads of patience and some technical know-how so why not do it in the comfort of your own hide where peace and quiet reign, away from the hustle and bustle of the urban environment? Take a flask of coffee and get comfortable.

Being lightweight and moveable it is an easy and simple exercise to pick up the hide from the inside and reposition the hide closer to the subject without the subject even knowing you are there. This is an ideal way of capturing the close up shot of a lifetime without disturbing the subject.

Various windows & their placement:

  • Two windows at head height, on opposite sides of the hide. These are large enough to accommodate people of different heights.
  • A prone level window is supplied for those shots that require a low-level camera angle on the subject. This window is opposite the access door allowing the person to have his feet extend out through the door when lying prone on the ground looking through the low-level window.
  • A new innovation is to have a top window which we refer to as the skylight. This is a large flap down the window at the top of the segment above the low-level window and allows extra light and ventilation into the hide as well as allowing the person to get shots of birds either flying overhead or perched above the hide. It also allows persons to stand up and stretch their legs after long periods of being seated.
  • Two convenient netting pockets on the inside for lens covers, mobile phones and any other equipment that needs to be close at hand, are a standard feature.
  • Velcro fasteners on all windows and on the door are a standard feature.
  • The hide is lightweight and weighs in at about 3.5 kg with the poles.
  • Each hide is supplied with guy ropes to secure the hide in windy weather.
