Watch 10 million bats descend into the Kasanka National Park.


Between October and December each year, about 10 million straw coloured fruit bats descend into a tiny patch of evergreen swamp forest inside Kasanka National Park, Northern Zambia. This natural phenomenon, unique only to Kasanka lends itself to some truly astonishing birdlife sightings set against a backdrop of incredible scenic surrounds and dramatic skies.

Itinerary

After pick up It's time to look out the windows and not down at a screen, feel the spirit of adventure and really see Zambia passing you by. Wave at the smiling kids and stop to buy that BBQ mealie (corn) from the mama by the roadside, my personal favorite seasonal snack which costs only around 50 cents.
After a 7hr smooth drive on good tar we reach Kasanka National Park. At roughly 390 km², Kasanka is one of Zambia's smallest national parks. Kasanka was the first of Zambia's national parks to be privately managed. We can camp at Kabwe Camp site. Quiet and with a beautiful setting overlooking a lovely grassland. Located midway between the Bat Forest and Bufumu Forest allows for a complete mix of wildlife and birding experiences. We may see Buffalo and the possible Elephant there if we are lucky.

We will also be viewing some bats from this point from October till the beginning of December. After 2 nights of being close to nature we drive back to Lusaka.
