I wish I had a better camera and editing skills but this is all I could come up with to share. It's a bit blurry and drags a bit at the start so go to about 2 mins 40 secs and after to see the bat formations. They come out of the caves everyday after sunset. When we were there, they were skirting around the canopy on the right-hand side of the video before they crossed to the other side, making ribbon-like shapes in the sky. The part when they start crossing over in large masses (i.e. in clouds of bats) start at around 4 mins 30 secs. Throughout this, I was being careful not to get guano and mosquitoes in my mouth.

Our smart and witty little tour guide is Harvey Davies Sambat. He's around 12 years old and belongs to the Itawes Indigenous Tribe. Some kids who live near the national park do this on a volunteer basis. If you want him to accompany you when you visit, send me a message and I'll help you connect to his number.

When you see the formations in the sky, I promise, it'll be pretty amazing =)
