Bushpig Distribution

Still distributed over a relatively wide natural range, the bushpig occurs from Somalia to eastern and southern former Zaire and southwards to Cape Province and Natal in South Africa (Oliver, 1993), having probably been introduced on Madagascar, Comoro and Mayotte Islands (Wilson & Reeder, 1993). Its distribution map was obtained from Oliver (1993) and then revised by Dr. J. P. d’Huart ( 28 April ‘97 ). Possible or presumed areas of intergradation between the two Potamochoerus species have been marked as "possible".

Categorical-discrete (CD) distribution model

This species lives in forests and other habitat types with dense vegetation. It is water bound (Oliver, 1993; Kingdon, 1997).
