East African montane forests

WWF Abstract

The paths through these forests have been well worn by animals large and small. The largest creatures you might see here are occasional elephants and buffalos, which use these forests as migration zones as they move from the grassy lowlands up to the higher moorlands. You are more likely to notice the lush vegetation, however, with multitudes of shrub plants, orchids, and tall trees spread throughout the ecoregion.
