Cacosternum boettgeri is a very abundant and widespread species, occurring in most suitable habitat throughout its range at both high and low elevations. This frog inhabits South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, the savanna regions of Namibia, eastern Botswana, southern Zambia and the Zimbabwe plateau. The range of C. boettgeri may have increased in the last century due to human activity, particularly where bush and reeds have been cleared and grass has been introduced (Van Dijk 1971b) along with domestic stock (Text from Minter et al., 2004, © SI/MAB Biodiversity Program).
