‪Just great!‬
זוגות • פבר׳ 2020
‪We had great 1/2 day trip from our hotel to the bat forest. Private quide and also some local guy (probably land owner or local farmer?) with us. There was small paths here and there. We walked thrue those paths about 2hours - great to see so many bats at the same time. When we were waiting our driver to pick up us we we met nice local kids and adults and showed them photos. a few of them even dared to come to the picture with us

Worth of going - absolutely ‬

‪You must order your trip on the near-by village.
It cost ~ 10$/person. There are a lot of flying foxes. Do not miss it!‬

‪Supporting endemic species‬
זוגות • מרץ 2018
‪Flying Foxes are endemic and endangered fruit eating bat species living in Pemba Island. Our guide was very local and gave us interesting information about these animals. The tour was very short, about 30 minutes, which is more than enough, as the bats are not so much active during the day and mostly sleep on the trees. The locals are just realizing how important these animals are for the ecosystem and by visiting this place you support their protection. With the good lense or binoculars you can enjoy and see these animals very nicely and if patient some of them even fly time to time. ‬

‪Really friendly guide - knowledgeable and helpful. Sundown trip watching the hundreds of huge fruit bats slowly waking up and taking to the skies. A one-off experience.‬

‪A unique experience‬
חברים • נוב׳ 2017
‪The reserve is situated in a beautiful location between fields and villages. The bats rest in the trees during daytime which is a good opportunity to see them. I think you need to have a guide which can be contacted on the location. It can be quite wet on a rainy day. To see thousands of flying bats is a truly unique and captivating experience.‬

‪No sure what I was expecting but I guess not bats hanging in a tree. Staff were super friendly and very informative but if I hated bats this would have been a bad choice. I am told if you get close their faces look like foxes‬

‪Flying Fox is not a fox.. its a bat! and have you every seen thousands of them in one area, during daytime? probably not.. here at Kadike is a forest where you walk through and only thing you need to be careful about is a poo-dropping on your shoulder... :) we discovered the Flying Fox! 70 cms wing span, weighing 650gm they are well conserved by the great initiative of the community and Kadike NGO. ‬

‪I have never ever seen such a large number of foxes in one place.

You cannot imagine the number of BATS that hang up on various types of trees in this forest. Brown body with a face of a fox and wings that look like black shiny leather, hang side by side each other not leaving space for even an ant to walk.

6,000 plus in number each BAT weighs an average of 650 gms and have a life span of 15 years approx.

We were given to understand that when the conservation project started there were only 100 BATS, so hats off to the conservation organisation that today there are 6,000 of these once upon a time Endangered species.

Certainly, a must see if you are in Pemba.

‪Worth a visit. The bats are as big as...foxes. Surreal to see them all circling overhead. Talk to Nassoor Haji @ Coral Travel & Tours. ‬
