Animals from Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks, including zebra, birds, elephant, ostriches, buffalo, lion, leopard, Dik Dik, tortoise, guinea fowls, wildebeest and other big mammals migrate to Randilen WMA which is set for photographic safaris as a major tourist activity.

The WMA conserved area is also frequented by big herds of elephant, African hunting dogs, buffalo, gerenuk, giraffe, eland, lion, leopard, impala, warthogs, waterbucks, hartebeest, jackals, lesser kudu, greater kudu, pangolin, Thomson gazelle and python that are commonly seen. The pancake tortoises are abundantly seen at the boundary hills.

Other than wild animals, Randilen WMA is home to various bird species attracted by vegetation and water sources which contribute to an abundance and variety of bird life like ostrich, ground hornbill, love birds, parrots, francolin, guinea fowls and Egyptian goose.

The areas have significant elephant and buffalo populations since the animals use this area as a migration area from Tarangire National Park. There is a breeding site for elephants where they give birth to young ones.

Tree climbing lion can be spotted in various places within the WMA, while at Lorusunyai gorges is home to pythons. Rare wildlife species like Wild dogs, Lesser Kudu, Sandy wood and Dalbergia melanoxylon tree species are also found in Randilen.

“Korongo la Duma” - A canyon where elephants produce their calves or giving birth to their offspring, is the other unique attraction in Randilen WMA and where tourists can visit to watch a natural phenomenon of which elephants reproduce.
