The Soutpansberg, an east-west trending mountain range, stretches some 130 km from 10 km west of Thohoyandou in the east to Vivo in the west. Patches of high-altitude Afromontane forest are found in valleys and moist basins. The Soutpansberg supports a Cape Vulture Gyps coprotheres colony, Cape Parrot Poicephalus robustus and Crowned Eagle Stephanoaetus coronatus.
