Range DescriptionThis species is known only from central and southern Kenya, southeastern Uganda, and from the Udzungwa Mtns (900 km to the south) in Tanzania (Van Rompaey and Kingdon 2013). The Tanzanian population seems to be highly localised: camera-trapping conducted from 2002 to 2004 at 76 sites throughout the Udzungwa Mountains recorded Jacksons Mongoose in only five sites in an area of only few km2 within Matundu Forest (De Luca and Rovero 2006). Intriguingly, however, extensive camera-trapping in this forest in 20132014 did not reveal the presence of this species again (F. Rovero and R. Havmller unpublished data). It has been recorded from about 300 m asl to montane elevations in the Aberdare Mtns, Mt Kenya and Mt Elgon up to 3,300 m asl.
