The Eyed Pansy, Junonia orithya madagascariensis, is found year-round throughout the north eastern parts of South Africa. Although it is wide-spread, it is uncommon. It's numbers peak from August to November and again from February to May.
The males are said to be highly territorial.

If you look in the right spots you should easily be able to find some during that time of the year (although they don't always cooperate as nicely for photos as this one). Look in marshy areas or along streams.
