Most of the area is characterised by open grassland, riverine forest, mixed terminalia and mopane savannas. The area is most noted for its very large elephant populations, which can reach enormous densities in the winter months. Impala, Lechwe, Kudu, Zebra, Giraffe, Sitatunga. Sable, Roan, Waterbuck, Buffalo, Bushbuck and the smaller antelope are all found here. The major predators such as Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Wild Dog and Hyena are resident and regularly sighted. The reed and papyrus swamps are ideal for numerous and diverse species of birds, ranging from the Fish Eagle to waterfowl, Stilts, Storks, Plovers and Herons.
One of the camp`s highlights are the wildlife sounds: very few camps in Africa are noisier! The pre~dawn chorus of bird song starts off the morning. Hippos grunt and snort all day, Baboons bark and screech, Elephants wander through camp and trumpet, and Lions often roar around the camp at night!
