Range Description

This species is endemic to South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland. It is widely distributed, except in the drier areas, in the Western Cape Province, east through the Eastern Cape Province, to Lesotho and KwaZulu-Natal Province, and northwards through western Swaziland to Mpumalanga and Limpopo Provinces. There are isolated populations in South Africa on the borders with Botswana and Namibia, and it presumably occurs in these two countries, although there have not so far been any records. It is introduced on St. Helena. It occurs from sea level up to 1,800 m asl.
