ZAM­BIA LIUWA PLAINS AND THE BAT MI­GRA­TION

Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - DOWN&DIRTYTOURS -

This sa­fari is a com­bi­na­tion of the wilde­beest mi­gra­tion in Liuwa Plains as well as the mi­gra­tion of the ‘fly­ing foxes’ (straw-coloured fruit bats) in Kasanka Na­tional Park. Few peo­ple have ven­tured into Liuwa Plains due to its rel­a­tive iso­la­tion; how­ever, the pro­lific birdlife, wilde­beest and the story of Lady Liuwa, the ‘last li­on­ess’ make it one of Africa’s last true wilder­ness ar­eas. At Kasanka, around eight mil­lion bats re­side in one hectare of Mushitu swamp for­est. Ex­pe­ri­ence this spec­tac­u­lar mi­gra­tion first-hand. All ac­com­mo­da­tion, park en­trance as well as ve­hi­cle en­trance fees at the camp­ing sites are in­cluded.
