Kasanka National Park

Situated in a remote region to the west of South Luangwa, Kasanka is a beautiful park famed for its gathering of millions of straw-coloured fruit bats in the months of November & December.

Why visit Kasanka National Park ?

The park encompasses a number of different ecosystems ranging from evergreen forests to papyrus swamps and as well as the bats is home to large herds of puku, elephant, buffalo, sable and roan, as well as the shy and elusive sitatunga (which can be observed from a well concealed tree hide).

There is also excellent birdlife in Kasanka with wattled cranes, green sunbirds, Lady Ross’s turaco and the African finfoot all present.
