Kasanka Bat Migration!

Cattle Egret in Kasanka National Park

Puku and Baboons grazing

Kasanka is known for it's Sitatunga, tough to see them anywhere else

Weaver bird

Elephants. We saw 17 one evening. 3 of those had poaching injuries.

Bat forest in Kasanka. The fruit bats, or flying foxes, migrate around central
Africa and congregate in Kasanka during the end of the year. They sleep
in about 1 hectare of swamp. 8 million 1 pound fruit bats.

Went during a full moon.

Which was gorgeous.

Each night they come to feed on local fruit trees.
