This species ranges from Djambala in southern Congo, south through southeastern Democratic Republic of Congo and eastern Angola, though northern and western Zambia and the Caprivi Strip of Namibia, south to the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana.
Habitat and Ecology
It is tightly associated with permanent water, in particular swamps and flood plains bordering swamps. It presumably breeds in swamps and flooded grassland.
There is little information on this species, but apparently they congregate in very large numbers to breed.
It occurs in a habitat that is not significantly threatened at present, but could become so in future as a result of agriculture, overgrazing by livestock, and human settlement.
It is likely to occur in a number of protected areas.
