Range Description

This species is distributed along the coast of East Africa, ranging from southern Somalia (south of the Jube River) in the north, southwards to KwaZulu-Natal province in South Africa, being found as far south along the coast as Lake Saint Lucia, with an isolated population in the Ongoye Forest. The species is also found on Mount Selinda in eastern Zimbabwe, and through much of Malawi, including Mount Mulanje (2,000 m asl). Within this range their occurrence is patchy and discontinuous due to their habitat requirements (Skinner and Smithers, 1990).
