A range of savanna and gallery forest species, the most notable being the IUCN Red Listed eastern chimpanzee.
Large mammals include bush duiker, bushbuck, hartebeest, lesser kudu, waterbuck, zebra and associated carnivore species such as lion and leopard also use the corridor.
Much of the forest that contained chimpanzee nests in 2005 within this corridor has since been completely felled for charcoal, timber and subsequently ploughed agriculture.
This is on-going and will probably be all finished very soon. Sanctioned charcoal manufacture exascerbates the problem.
