The first of Kasanka’s famous straw-coloured fruitbats (Eidolon helvum) start arriving towards the middle of October each year. By mid-November the roost has reached its highest density and numbers are estimated to be around eight million! It is believed to be the highest density of mammalian biomass on the planet, as well as the greatest mammal migration known to man.
A group of us visited Kasanka National Park last week in order to witness the largest mammal migration in the world. It was pretty spectacular.
