There are more than enough flying mammals involved in the annual bat migration to literally darken the dawn and dusk skies over Kasanka, a remote swamp in Zambia. The Kasanka bats arrive to feast on fruits, and in turn provide a feast for raptors and crocodile. You'll (ahem) go batty at the enormity of this unparalleled wildlife spectacle.
