The Forest Massif of Odzala Kokoua comprises savanna ecosystems that have seen post-glacial forest recolonization.
It includes very rare types of forest. The fully overlapping Odzala Kokoua National Park is dotted with clearings, salt pans and savannas. The park protects a near-complete assemblage of Central African mammal species, except for Lion. It is essential to Forest Elephant migrations in the region, and is a critical stronghold for Western Lowland Gorillas and Chimpanzees in Central Africa.
