The Beira toad (Bufo beiranus) is a species of toad in the Bufonidae family. This anuran is found in Malawi, Mozambique, and Zambia. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry shrubland, subtropical or tropical seasonally wet or flooded lowland grassland, and intermittent freshwater marshes.

According to C.Michael Hogan, chief threats to the species are from over extraction of surface waters, and from conversion of certain lands to agriculture.
