Experience the park and migration from above as you take scenic helicopter flights, stopping at lagoons, beautiful bird colonies and for remote picnics in the bush. For a cultural insight, watch the Munde spearfishing inside the park.
To revel in a natural wildlife phenomenon, unique only to this location, venture to the remote and unspoilt Kasanka National Park.

Scale wooden ladders into the forest canopy to get amongst the action, watch eagles crashing into the swarms of bats, and be amazed by the screeching sounds that surround.
