Like other baboons, the olive baboon has an elongated, dog-like muzzle. In fact, along with the muzzle, the animal's tail () and four-legged gait can make baboons seem very canine. The tail almost looks as if it is broken, as it is erect for the first quarter, after which it drops down sharply. The bare patch of a baboon's rump, famously seen in cartoons and movies, is a good deal smaller in the olive baboon. The olive baboon, like most cercopithecines, has a cheek pouch with which to store food.
Throughout its wide range, the olive baboon can be found in a number of different habitats. It is usually classified as savanna-dwelling, living in the wide plains of the grasslands. The grasslands, especially those near open woodland, do make up a large part of its habitat, but the baboon also inhabits rainforests and deserts. Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, for instance, both support olive baboon populations in dense tropical forests.
Most primates that end up at the center are former pets, but some species, like the rhesus macaque and olive baboon are common laboratory animals. The center is currently home to over fifty animals of the following twelves species:
In Eritrea, the olive baboon has formed a symbiotic relationship with that country's endangered elephant population. The baboons use the water holes dug by the elephants, while the elephants use the tree-top baboons as an early warning system.
Other mammals frequently seen in the park include olive baboon, warthogs, Grant's gazelle, Kirk's dik-dik, impala, and waterbuck. The rhinoceros population is no longer present in the park due to heavy poaching.
One major reason for its widespread success is that the olive baboon is omnivorous. As such it is able to find nutrition in almost any environment, and it is able to adapt with different foraging tactics. For instance, the olive baboon in grassland goes about finding food differently from one in a forest. The baboon forages on all levels of an environment, above and beneath the ground and in the canopy of forests. Most animals only look for food at one level; an arboreal species such as a lemur does not look for food on the ground. The olive baboon searches as wide an area as it can, and it eats virtually everything it finds.
Besides the mane, the male olive baboon differs from the female in terms of size and weight, and canine tooth size; males are, on average, tall while standing and females measure in height. The olive baboon is one of the largest species of monkey; only the chacma baboon and the mandrill attain similar sizes. The head-and-body length can range from , with a species average of around . At the shoulder on all fours, females average against males, which average . The typical weight range for both sexes is reportedly , with males averaging and females averaging . Some males may weigh as much as .

This species is affected by hunting and habitat destruction through deforestation. Secondary threats probably include predation by forest birds and mammals such as the olive baboon "Papio anubis" and yellow baboon "P. cynocephalus". However, the extent of all threats is unknown because the population of this ibis is largely undocumented.
The celebrated animals in the park are mostly primates, including chimpanzee, beach comber olive baboon, red-tailed monkey, and red colobus monkey. The park is the site of Jane Goodall's ongoing study of chimpanzee behaviour, which started in 1960. The study has reported 150 individuals who are familiar with humans.
Primates reported include: olive baboon "(Papio anubis)" of large size with inverted “U” shaped tail; the green monkey "(cercopithecus sabaeus)", the most common monkey species; the red monkey or patas "(Erythrocebus patas)" with an orange tinged coat) found in Northern Benin.

The Sudan cheetah may have been extirpated from the area. It also has a large and diverse freshwater ecosystem around its freshwater springs and the Raji River.
The olive baboon is listed as least concern by the IUCN because "this species is very widespread and abundant and although persecuted as a crop raider there are no major threats believed to be resulting in a range-wide population decline". Despite persecution, the baboon is still widespread and numerous. However, competition and disease have possibly led to fewer baboons in closed forests. It has been actively persecuted as a pest.
There are also good populations of several other large herbivores like Sudanese buffaloes ("Syncerus caffer brachyceros"; c. 2,700 animals in 2000), western hartebeests ("Alcelaphus buselaphus major"; c. 1,500 in 2000), roan antelope (c. 2,000 in 2000), kob antelope (c. 2,600 in 2000), and warthogs.
