The reserve is also home to many other species of animals, both mammals, birds and reptiles: lions, leopards, cheetahs, lycaons, several species of antelope, gazelles, warthogs, jackals, giraffes, hippos, crocodiles and more than 450 species of birds, but above all a large number of elephants; in fact, it is estimated that more than 900 live here and it is very common to spot them as they descend to the river to drink and refresh themselves.
