Zambezian Baikiaea woodlands

WWF Abstract

Wander through the forests, thickets, and grasslands of this southern African ecoregion and you'll be dazzled by the variety of life forms that climb, gallop, and fly about you. Honey badgers dig for insects and rodents in the soil. Herds of zebras, roan antelopes, sable antelopes, bushbucks, and kudus graze on lush grasses and shrubs. Vultures and hawk eagles circle overhead. This ecoregion even harbors some of Africa's largest mammals, including white rhinos, black rhinos, elephants, lions, cheetahs, and leopards.
