Fruit bats, nicknamed flying foxes, don?t do things in half measures: 10 million of them migrate to Zambia, during which time they will devour over a billion waterberries.
Few places in the world rival Zambia's natural beauty and ecological diversity. Travel to three of these extraordinary habitats to witness the lives of three remarkable animals. Watch as a baby giraffe takes its first steps in the sweltering Luangwa Valley. Ascend to the high plateau of Kasanka, where two thousand Kinda baboons have found a primate paradise in the forest. Follow a cheetah family on the prowl for meat on the desolate Liuwa Plain. For the animals who call these lands home, their uncompromising environments are paradise.
