Sarafl! :clap: :clap:

Kruger's two most common species of Bat are the Angolan Free Tailed and the Little Free Tailed Bat. Highly gregarious roosters, these two species will often roost together in mixed colonies reaching numbers in excess of 1000 individuals. They can be found in the majority of Kruger's accommodation as well as the high level bridges and the bat houses within Kruger (mostly occupied by Angolan Free tailed Bat).

I do not know how long ago. :hmz:
By Anna Faherty:

In Letaba Rest CampA new range of accommodation units was unveiled last week, as part of Letaba Rest Camp’s ongoing Bat House Research Project. The new structures, erected in pre-appointed positions throughout camp, were designed by field guide Ian Pollard who has been involved in the project from its conception. They will house bats currently roosting in guest accommodation and other park buildings.

Following the successful installation and monitoring of two bat houses last year, which supported their use as part of a viable and ecological bat control programme, ten further structures have now been put in place by Letaba’s general workers.
