Located in Northern Zambia, Kasanka National Park is a true wildlife and nature gem. This park, although small, is home to an abundance of flora and fauna, and serves as a valuable protected area for a number of endangered species. Kasanka is also the site of unique annual bat migration, when 10 million straw-coloured fruitbats descend on a small patch of evergreen forest in the park. This spectacular phenomenon is true bucket-list experience.
Wasa Lodge overlooks Wasa Lake in the heart of the park. The lodge features 7 chalets, each with en-suite facilities, and a verandah with lake views. Guests can relax at the main lodge area, enjoying the beautiful views and kicking back with a drink at the cosy bar or outside next to the campfire.
There are plenty of unique and exciting activities on offer to guests at Wasa Lodge. Guided walks take you to explore the park’s swamps, forests, and Lake Wasa. You can visit the Bat Forest, see nocturnal creatures on a night game drive, and enjoy fantastic birding opportunities. Experience a canoeing or boating safari, and get a glimpse of local culture with a visit to the local school and village. And, of course, if you visit during the migration season, you will have the chance to witness the spectacular bat migration.
