Hi Trevor
they are listed in Roberts for this area and there is no mention of vagrant birds for this area, birds seen in South Africa or in fact a little further south than this sighting are generally considered vagrant or escapee's. They are seen to be confined to the Zambezi valley and escarpment area no further south than that it appears.

Shucks - it is actually Black-cheeked Lovebirds that I was thinking of as escapees at Vic Falls :redface:

To add what wingman has mentioned -According to Birds of Africa south of the Sahara, they only occur in the Zambezi valley area as well as north eastern Zambia, close to the Malawi/Tanzania border
