Seen a family of four in Mill Park, Port Elizabeth, on the edge of the Valley. I would like to have taken a pic, but rather just watched, than fetch the camera and miss the special moment. Apparently they are often sighted in the area.

Seen them from Knysna north. Seen Livingstone's Subspecie (however you want to define it) around moz border, Kosi Bay etc. And also seen them at Vic Falls. I think also a different Sub species up there.

Most of my sightings have been in the forests of Magoebaskloof. At the hotel, down Woodbush drive, Lesodi trail, Debengeni falls and at Rooikoppies (the Bat Hawk site).
Other sightings have been at God's Window (near Graskop) and Hanglip Forest (Makhado).
