SAVANNAH GRASSLAND

This region consists mainly of a habitat made up of mixed grassland species.

The open country has limited tree and shrub growth that is usually confined to watercourses, hillsides and more rugged terrain.

Stock farming and poor agriculture practice has destroyed much of this habitat.

The remaining protected areas are prime habitat for plains game, which exists, in considerable numbers.

The grasslands biomass is considerable and has the greatest carrying capacity in the southern African region for mammal and bird life.
