Each year up to ten million straw-coloured fruit bats descend upon Kasanka National Park, forming one of the most spectacular, yet largely unknown, wildlife spectacles and attracting wildlife thrill-seekers from around the world. This safari puts you in the right place at the right time to witness this magnificent migration, thought to be the largest mammal migration in the natural world. The bats at Kasanka have received international acclaim over recent years, featuring in David Attenborough’s BBC ‘Life’ series, CNN’S ‘must-see’ list and Mark Carwardine’s latest book ‘Ultimate Wildlife Experiences’.
What makes this trip extraordinary
- Visit South Luangwa; home to 20-35,000 elephants, and a huge population of leopard.
- Enjoy sundowners as up to 10 million bats rise from the trees in a huge cloud.
- Watch sitatunga at the Fibwe Hide.
- Stunning sunsets at Kasanka National Park.
Until you see and experience the great bat migration you really won't be able to fathom the number that populates the orange sky.
