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.

This is our big trip for 2018 with the highlight of the bat migration in the Kasanga National Park, Zambia. 10 000 000 (ten million) bats come together from the Congo to feast on fruits only found in the small Kasanga Forest Reserve. This is the biggest mammal migration on earth and a definite must do once in your lifetime.

South Luangwa is another big ticket place on this tour. Very few places in Africa can offer the unique combination of South Luangwa National Park’s open, grassy plains and mature, mesmerizing woodlands, crowned with the pristine, impressive Luangwa River. This area’s reputation for abundant wildlife and unspoiled vegetation is well earned, so whether driving around or walking through, the intense beauty calls to you from every corner.

The tour is the pinnacle in our annual tour calendar with so many wonderful sites and places we will be visiting. The bonus is the journey South through Zimbabwe after the tour has ended and you are welcome to tag along as we make our way visiting Gonarezhou National Park and into Kruger National Park.
