Surdisorex is a genus of mammal in the family Soricidae. It is one of three genera of African shrews, which, in turn, are one of three living subfamilies of shrews. They are called African mole shrews because of their similarity to moles, to which they are not closely related. There are three species, all found only in Kenya:
- Aberdare Mole Shrew (Surdisorex norae)
- Mt. Kenya Mole Shrew (Surdisorex polulus)
- Surdisorex schlitteri
