The landscape is majorly characterized by the continuous grassy-plains scattered with millions of wild animals offering a typical ‘Out of Africa” experience. Nonetheless some parts are covered with Acacia savanna, thick forested hills and even rocky outcrops recognized as koppies, in addition to pans plus lakes.
