Southern Congolian forest-savanna mosaic

WWF Abstract

Visit this ecoregion and you'll quickly discover why it's called a "forest-savanna mosaic." There's not just one type of habitat common in the region; instead, you'll find moist forest giving way to great stretches of savanna and grassland. This habitat variability is a result of the region's large climatic fluctuations over the last 10 million years and of human activities--especially cultivation and burning. You'll find a number of animals inhabiting this forest-savanna mosaic, including bongos, bushbucks, and buffalos.
