Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical savanna
Protection: national/state park
Substrate: ground surface
Habitat comments: "a forest–savanna mosaic, with dense gallery forest along the deeper river valleys, and extensive savanna areas"

Sampling methods: no design, automatic cameras
Sample size: 510
Years: 2007

Sampling comments: "We mounted 25 [35-mm DeerCam 200] camera-trap units... along survey circuits, aiming for approximately 5-km spacing between traps. We placed single camera-trap units at locations showing large carnivore use, or at otherwise promising landscape features that appeared to attract potential lion prey... We lost 1 unit each to spotted hyenas and a technical failure, whereas the remaining 23 units operated reliably"
