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.
