These are Pteropus seychellensis comorensis, and both pictures would be a wonderful addition to AfriBats!
Spotted in a cave
I don't know the species and the photo is not very close up but there is a huge "bat tree" in town with hundreds of bats hanging in it and sometimes suddenly many of them will fly off at the same time.

We had been to this park before, 25 Aug 2013, and returned on 4 Nov 2013 to see the bats again. Some of the bats were very active, flying and then landing and hanging again. They were very noisy.

A lovely family had built this little home for the bats in the area.
Who has a shot of a flying bat?? This has been on my list since i started photography! It still is on my list to get a high resolution close-up but this will suffice for now.

North of Kalemie, Kilicha River, 1880 m. Captured in a clearing near a stream in a deep valley. The forest covering the surrounding slopes was dense with tall trees (40–50 m) covering the surrounding slopes and had a fairly open understorey. The clearing was formed in an area where the stream had deposited gravel in the wet season but was at a much lower level at the time of capture (dry season).
