Nice shot! The flowers are pollinated by fruit bats.

@jakob, Nice ! Rousettus spp. I suppose ? Any idea of the specie ?

A whole range of species, including Rousettus: www.inaturalist.org/observations/identotron?observation_id=4735609#order=&place=7142&taxon=40782

By the way: bat observations would be highly welcome here (there's a colony of Eidolon helvum roosting in Kigali, if you want to go hunting these): www.inaturalist.org/projects/afribats
