Found in semi-desert savanna. They may be found in open woodlands but they tend to avoid dense woodlands. They prefer open plains such as grassplains, floodplains, grassveld, vleis and strips of grass around pans.
Preferred habitat is the dry, arid regions of Namibia, the Kalahari, southern Botswana, northwestern South Africa.
