The mistbelt forms an irregular band through the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, extending from Weza in the southwest to Ngome in the northeast. The forests hold many important species, including the largest remaining population of the threatened Cape Parrot Poicephalus robustus as well as Red-necked Spurfowl Pternistis afer and Lemon Dove Aplopelia larvata.
