Wildlife Attraction
It is within the Malagalasi-Moyowosi wetland, which is the large and excellent example of an East African floodplain wetland ecosystem in good condition. The wetland provides an important dry season refuge and feeding area for migratory animals including many water birds and large mammal species. It is also is an important breeding area for rare water birds including the wattled crane and shoebill stork
The vegetation of Moyowosi is mainly Miombo woodland. The wetlands are covered with swamp, which are homes for the elusive Sitatunga, Hippo and the Crocodile. The adjacent plains that separate the Miombo from the swamp are roamed by the Topi, Zebra, Buffalo and other antelope such as Sable and Roan that are found in Western Tanzania.
Moyowosi with the combination of Kigosi and Ugalla game reserves form a vast and complex reverine floodplain wetland in the basin of the Malagalasi River. The basin has five main rivers, the Malagalasi, Moyowosi, Kigosi, Gombe and Ugalla which drain an area of 9.2 million hectares (about 30% of the Lake Tanganyika catchments system).
