Its rolling hills and open grassy valleys are a haven for herds of impala, klipspringer, eland and buffalo, as well as the agile Rock Hyrax or the more elusive topi. Much of the vegetation consists of acacia woodland, grasslands and important wetlands. From the higher hilltops the wide panorama of the park reveals the variety of natural habitats of the indigenous wildlife.

Predators are rarely seen in the park, although well camouflaged leopards are sometimes detected. For birdwatchers there is a wide variety of water and dry land species, including the natina trogon, the rare Shoebill Stork and the Abyssinia Ground Hornbill.
