Other animal species found are the Sable antelope, elephant shrew, bushy-tailed mongoose and other small mammals like fruit bats. 

The forest is an important bird area and is endowed with forest birdlife while the grasslands hold localised species such as red-necked-Spur fowl, Croaking Cisticola and Zanzibar Red Bishop. The scenic Sheldrick Falls and the dense Mwaluganje Forest are also found here along with four campsites.
