Mangrove kingfisher () has an extensive coastal distribution from southern Somalia to the Eastern Cape, South Africa (Fry , 1988, 1992). However, in the Zambezi and Save River valley it ranges far inland; in the Save valley extending at least 120 km or more inland (Allan , 2000: 21) and in the Zambezi valley approximately 150 km inland to the Caia-Inhamitanga district (authors, pers. obs.). There is also a sight record of mangrove kingfisher in riverine vegetation from the confluence of the Sabi-Lundi rivers in southeastern Zimbabwe, July 1999 (R. Boon, pers. comm.), a locality c. 270 km inland (and also representing a new addition to the Zimbabwean avifauna).
