Typical birds include Red-winged Starling, Familiar Chat, Rock Bunting, Black Sunbird, Purple-crested Lourie, Golden-breasted Bunting, Black-eyed Bulbul and Freckled Nightjar. There are also Crowned Eagles, Bateleur and several species of vulture. The craggy rocks of the area provide an ideal environment for numerous species of lizards, including the Common Flat Lizard, Giant Plated Lizard, Rainbow Skink, Striped Skink and Common Dwarf Gecko on rocks near the lodge. Crocodile are common in the adjoining Kruger National Park. Hardy plants of rocky habitats include Kudu Lily, Baboon's Tail/Fire Sticks, Barberton Daisy, Rock Aloe and Lebombo Aloe.
