Best catch on the Wildcamera so far.

Bears and Lynx in the Carpatian mountains

I left my wildcamera on a spot in the nearby forest for only 2 weeks.  When I checked the footage there was a great diversity of animals filmed. Even a Bear and the very rare Lynx! Check out the video below to see the video.

Badger cubs

Badgers burrow in ocolis, close to Tara Nomada Camping

I found a new badgers burrow by following tracks in the winters last snow. When I checked the images on the wildcamera it turned out to be inhabited by a mother badger with two cubs. Check the video to see how the cubs discover their backyard for the first time and see what animals come and visit them.


I was so lucky to be around when the cubs were allowed to play outside for the first time in daylight. Check the video below to see how they enjoyed themselves.


Wild Camera

I left my camera for a month at this watering hole just a few hundred meters from Tara Nomada. Check the video to see what animals came for a drink.

In this one I placed the camera outside a badgers den. Watch the video to see what they’re up to. And see which animals come to visit them.

I placed a piece of bone on the hill. What animal will get to it first?

Man who stare at trees – The Movie

Last year, the two German comedians, Uli and Suso went into the woods from our campsite to survive in the wilderness for two weeks. They captured their adventure and turned it into a real movie. Men Staring at Trees can be viewed via the Youtube link below. (The film is in German but Youtube can provide subtitles).

In May 2022,  Boettcher and Engelhardt went into the wilderness of the Carpathians. They wanted to spend two weeks in the forest, far away from the achievements of the modern world, to get a clear idea of ​​what life would be like without these achievements. How the civilized man feels without civilization. What longings, insights and problems would show up. “Men who stare at trees” is a research project for Uli Boettcher’s stage program “Auszeit”, which premiered in October ’22.
