A BAT STORY – FROM ROBIN POPE SAFARIS
If you love Bats, or large densities of Mammals then this is a must, for your next Safari Adventure!.
Hi there! I hope you are well, had a lovely weekend and are sitting comfortably to look up to the skies for this week’s flying tale. As some may know, and others may be about to find out, Zambia has a host of incredible natural wonders. Obviously we think that the Luangwa is pretty much up there but for this week I am going to take you west of the Luangwa Valley to one of Zambia’s smallest National Parks, Kasanka, which is a mere 420 km2. In the centre of this park lies a 40 hectare forest & swamp area that hosts an annual wildlife phenomenon. As the Musuka and Waterberry trees of the region begin to fruit, up to10 million straw coloured fruit bats make their way from the DRC to this one particular patch in Zambia.
