Wildlife Plains game, in particular, topi, eland, impala, waterbuck, reedbuck, and bushbuck are everywhere. Roan, that large and dramatic antelope is present in large herds. Herds of buffalo are also common. There is currently no lion in Ibanda, and so the main large predators are leopard and hyena. Hippos and crocodiles abound in the Kagera River and in some of the lakes and swamps.
The Kagera River is bordered on the Tanzanian side by grassy banks leading down to heavy vegetation with forest trees and palms, and there are places with beautiful overlooks of the river where one can relax with a picnic or take a tea break during a game drive.
