The botanically rich, high-rainfall mountainveld of the south-west provides habitat niches for some of Kruger's rarest antelope. This is the only part of Kruger where the the grey rhebok is found.
The south-west is the most mountainous part of Kruger and gets more rainfall than anywhere else in the Park. The granite foothills can be divided into two main habitats - the Malelane mountain veld in the south around Berg-en-Dal and the Pretoriuskop sourveld to the west around Numbi and Pretoriuskop.
