The Kilala plains are picturesque, level savanna plains that serve as a grazing ground for a variety of species, including antelopes, buffaloes, and zebras. The diverse population of herbivorous animals in the Kilala plains renders it a preferred hunting habitat for carnivorous predators, making it an ideal location to observe lions, hyenas, and other predatory species. These plains are the primary region for observing animals in the park, which is essential to experience.
