Aardwolves are endemic to the continent of Africa and can be found in two separate populations, one in the South and another in the Northeast. They live in grassland, savanna, and shrubland regions.
A southern population of aardwolves, Proteles cristata cristata, ranges over most of southern Africa, extending into the countries of South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, southern Angola, southern Zambia, and southwestern Mozambique.
1,500 kilometers away, a northern population, Proteles cristata septentrionalis, ranges from central Tanzania through northeastern Uganda, Kenya, Somalia, along the coast of Ethiopia and Sudan, and the southeastern tip of Egypt.
