Northern Acacia-Commiphora bushlands and thickets

WWF Abstract

The Northern Acacia-Commiphora Bushlands and Thickets is teeming with animals. And during the dry season, thousands migrate many miles to congregate at water holes. Drinking there at any one time you might find elephants, rhinos, zebras, giraffes, and antelopes, as well as birds such as chestnut-bellied sandgrouse and black-faced sandgrouse. Elephants play an important role as architects in this habitat. By routinely knocking down trees as they feed, they open and transform woodlands into grassland savannas.
