4 day / 3 night Zambian Bat Safari
The Bat Migration is one of the most jaw-dropping spectacles of nature and an absolute must to experience! While the sheer volume of bats is special, it is the atmosphere surrounding this phenomenon that really gets things worked up – dramatic skies as the early summer rains come closer, large raptors like crowned and martial eagles swooping through the bats and taking them on the wing and of course, usual Kasanka specials like the rare sitatunga grazing out in the misty dambos in the morning. It really is a mecca for a true safari enthusiast
