Consisting of mix of deciduous, secondary semi-evergreen and wet deciduous forest types, which contain plant species with thick undergrowth, the sighting of large mammals is poor in the forests that surround the campus and thus viewing is not possible for the enthusiastic guest that are here for a short span of time. While wildlife is in its plentiful, sighting are poor thanks to the ability of animals to camouflage in the thick undergrowth of shrubs that are part of this forest.
