Range Description

Heterohyrax brucei, is endemic to Africa, and has a wide distribution. The species occurs from the northern parts of South Africa (Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces) northwards to Ethiopia, Sudan and Somalia; there is a large, disjoint population in west-central Angola (H. b. bocagei) (Barry and Shoshani 2000, Barry and Hoeck 2013), and an apparently isolated subpopulation in southwestern Democratic Republic of the Congo (H. b. chapini). References to this species in Algeria and Egypt are in error, and both relate to confusion with P. capensis (Hoffmann et al. 2008).
