The reserve consists of two habitats, a dry forest and a riverine forest. Parcel 1 of this reserve consists of 80 ha of mixed vegetation including riverine forest in the eastern part of the reserve, near the Sakamena River, and more xerophytic forest towards the western boundary. Each has its own plants and animals.
