The Walberg's epauletted fruit bat can be found in Africa, anywhere south of the Sahara desert. These bats live in woodland and savannah areas, and prefer the edges of forests. During the summer, they migrate in large numbers to Taaween, in the Zoutpansberg district of South Africa, attracted by the ripening crop of guavas.
