Victoria Basin forest-savanna mosaic

WWF Abstract

The rolling hills and plateaus of the Victorian Basin Forest-Savanna Mosaic ecoregion are a unique landscape where species from west African forest ecosystems converge with those from east African forest-savanna mosaics. The region’s scattered lakes, rivers, and marshes add to the great diversity of habitats supporting a wide variety of species. These include more than 310 species of trees and shrubs, 280 species of birds, 220 species of butterflies, and 100 species of moths. Animals such as banded toads, red-faced barbets, and Mwanza rock agamas are among the many endemic species that can be found here.
