Eastern Miombo woodlands

WWF Abstract

The Eastern Miombo Woodlands ecoregion of East Africa forms the eastern part of a large expanse of woodlands that runs through Africa from the Congo Basin and eastern African savannas west to Angola. The landscape has undulating, gently sloping ridges interspersed with shallow, flat-bottomed valleys ("dambos") that are often seasonally waterlogged. The ecoregion is sparsely settled and possesses a great deal of biological diversity, including endemic lizards, herds of antelopes, and a few rare black rhinoceroses.
