Kasanka National Park and Bangweulu Wetlands
Kasanka National Park though small has a wide variety of vegetation zones from dry evergreen forests to permanent papyrus swamps and moist forests. This park doesn't have huge herds of big game, but it does have some unusual species, like the rare slender-snouted crocodile.It also has a superb tree-hide for to observe the shyest antelope, the Sitatunga. Kasanka has great birdwatching, and in November and December you can see the world's largest mammal migration of up to 15 million fruit bats , which is a bucket list option.
Wasa Lodge and Luwombwa Lodge are the only camps and are rustic and basic.
The Bangweulu Wetlands is an enormous floodplain of islands, reed-beds and lagoons .The main attraction is its prolific birdlife, including the pre historic shoebill stork and tens of thousands of endemic black lechwe on the plains around the wetlands. Travel here is not easy and is generally done as a day trip from Kasanka.(not for the feint hearted).
