The park’s vegetation can best be described as open tree Savannah which varies much in structure and composition.
Mountain forest dominates some of the high places, while areas along the Lorupei River support dense Acacia geradi forest. The park is rich in birdlife given the diversity of species found in the park. These include ostriches and Kori bustard, Verreaux's eagle, Egyptian vulture and Pygmy falcon, the Red billed the yellow-billed and Jackson's hornbill, giant Abyssinia ground hornbill among others. The local communities around the park include pastoral Karamajong people, similar to the Masai of Kenya, and the Ik, a dying hunter-gatherer tribe.
