Ten million bats. Two months to see for yourself. One place to experience it.

Bat migration in zambiaEvery year, from October until December, 10 million straw-coloured fruit bats make their way to Kasanka National Park in Zambia from the Congo, to feed on the wild musuku fruits.

Only seven hours from Lusaka and the Copperbelt, you can book yourself a front-row seat to this spectacular wildlife encounter. It is the world’s largest mammal migration.

With improved and enlarged platforms overlooking the bat forest and a number of exclusive viewing hides, this year’s bat season promises to be the most breath-taking yet.

Accommodation is provided at the Wasa Lodge, where you can relax in your own lakeside rondavel and sample the cuisine from the Kasanka kitchen.

Alternatively, explore our Luwombwa Camp by the river, or pitch your tent at one of our spacious campsites.

Featured in David Attenborough’s Africa series in January, the annual bat migration has become world-famous and we’re inviting you to see it for yourself. This spectacular event was covered in the “Mammals” episode on BBC TV.
