Enjoy walking safaris, game drives and night drives in South Luangwa National Park before travelling to Kasanka National Park to witness the incredible sight of millions of fruit bats taking up residence there.
The world's largest mammal migration - that of the straw-coloured fruit bat - takes place from November to December when between eight and ten million bats congregate in a two-hectare patch of mushitu forest. Each day at dusk, the bats - many of which have a wingspan of more than two metres - fly out of the forest in a ‘blizzard of bats' to feed, returning only at dawn. Kasanka also offers excellent sightings of the shy and elusive sitatunga antelope, and is a birder's paradise in which 466 species of bird have been recorded.
Combined with five nights in the Luangwa Valley on escorted walking safaris, vehicle safaris and night drives, this makes for a fantastic trip exploring the diverse wildlife of Zambia.
