One of the park’s highlights is the Fibwe tree-hide – a short climb into a magnificent mahogany. It is probably the best place in Africa for observing wild sitatunga, and sightings of these elusive antelope are virtually guaranteed.
Visit Kasanka in November and December and you will witness an enormous gathering of up to 15 million straw-coloured fruit bats. This is one of the highest concentrations of mammals anywhere on the planet and watching them fly at sunset is an awesome sight.
Wasa Lodge is the main base for the park’s team. Wasa has eight thatched rondavels, each with en-suite showers and flush toilet, as well as a few more basic chalets. Like the separate bar/dining area, these have a lovely location overlooking Lake Wasa.
