Range Description

Widely distributed in central, eastern and southern Africa, from the Cross River in Nigeria to south-east Sudan and southwards to central Angola, and remnant forests and thickets in Zambia, Malawi, eastern Zimbabwe, and parts of central Mozambique. In South Africa, this species is mainly confined to the evergreen forest and thicket along the coast from northern KwaZulu-Natal to the eastern Western Cape province; there are no confirmed records from Swaziland and none from southern Mozambique, suggesting a break in distribution between their South African range and eastern Zimbabwe and central Mozambique. Also present on the islands of Pemba, Zanzibar and Mafia (East 1999; Wilson 2001; Hart and Kingdon in press).
