Thanks!

There might be a few lions here, never seen one myself, never caught one on a trail camera either. There are a fair number of leopards, but they stay pretty well hidden, there are also hyenas and possibly wild dogs. The large mammals I see most often while on the bike are several species of primates (patas and green monkey, guinea baboon) and warthogs.

The animals that cause the most deaths (other than mosquitoes and humans) here are snakes, but there have been cases of injured leopards attacking and killing poachers and last December a wounded buffalo gored and killed a young guy.
