Ukusekela isihlangu kukhona iQuagga (Equus quagga quagga) futhi, i-Bontebok (i-Damaliscus dorcas dorcas), zombili zazo zingumdabu esifundazweni. I-quagga okwamanje ayiqedi, kodwa ucwaningo luyaqhubeka nohlelo olukhethekile lokuzalanisa ngenhloso yokukhiqiza inani elisha labo. I-bontebok yayisesinye isikhathi esiseduze nokuqothulwa kodwa manje inabantu abasebenza kahle.

Phezulu kwesihlangu i-coronet, eyakhiwe i-beaded heading, njengoba igqoke iSan, i-protea, emele i-fynbos etholakala esifundazweni nasemasongweni afanekisela ukuphelela, njengoba engapheli futhi akukho isiqalo.
