A large mushitu, 25 km west of Mpongwe and just south of St Anthony’s Mission and Lake Kashiba (a National Monument). The forest is partly surrounded by a large dambo and also by some villages and cultivation. A number of poorly defined tracks run through the forest, but otherwise it remains relatively undisturbed.
See Box and Table 3 for key species. A wealth of mushitu species are to be found, several of which are endemic to the Zambezian biome. Imanda is a well-known site for Batis margaritae, which is fairly common. Other typical species include Musophaga rossae, Mesopicos griseocephalus, Campephaga quiscalina, Sheppardia bocagei, Bradypterus lopezi, Phylloscopus laurae, Apalis cinerea, Trochocercus cyanomelas and Telophorus multicolor. Columba larvata and Indicator meliphilus have also been recorded.
