Kasanka National Park is one of the most picturesque parks in the North of Zambia and is open all year round. It is a beautiful wilderness of woodland, plains, lakes, rivers and swamps and contains a rich diversity of animal, bird and plant life including several rare species including sitatunga, wattled crane, Ross’s Lourie and Blue Monkeys. Kasanka is also host to a unique and spectacular congregation of several Million Straw-Coloured Fruitbats every November and December.
As well as its attraction for visitors, Kasanka National Park forms a valuable protected area for many endangered species. Kasanka is Zambia’s first national park under private management and is entirely reliant on tourism revenue and charitable funding. It is a valuable conservation area with diverse flora and fauna including many endangered species and exceptional birdlife.
