Range Description

This species has been recorded with certainty from the highlands of Kenya, from Mount Elgon in the west, to Marsabit in the north, and Nairobi in the south. It occurs in the Rift Valley at Lakes Naivasha and Nakuru. There are records from Tanzania at: Bermi near Babati; Serengeti National Park; and Njombe in the south of the country. It seems likely that this species replaces Xenopus muelleri in upland areas through most of East Africa, and many records previously assigned to X. muelleri in the inland parts of East Africa might well refer to this species. It is likely to occur in Uganda. The current map should be considered provisional. It occurs above 1,000 m asl, especially above 1,800 m asl, and has been found up to 2,400 m asl, probably higher.
