Kasanka National Park may be one of Zambia’s smallest national parks, but also one of the most picturesque and boasts a great deal of biodiversity. Abundant in grasslands, forests, lagoons and swamps. They host a rich and highly unique population of mammals, birds, reptiles, and carnivores including the blue monkey, sitatunga antelope, olive sunbird, marsh mongoose and slender-snouted crocodile.

It is also home to one of natures phenomena, the annual Kasanka Bat Migration which is one of the largest mammal migrations in the world. Over 10 million fruit bats converge in Kasanka National Park during the months of October to December.
