Gundis are confined to northern Africa. Speke's pectinator occurs from Eritrea and Ethiopia east to Somalia, while the other four species occur further west, in the Sahara region. The mzab gundi is confined to the central Sahara from Algeria and Mali to Libya and Chad, while the felou gundi (Felovia vae) occurs in Mauritania and Mali. The two Cten-odactylus species have overlapping ranges, the desert gundi (C. vali) ranging from Morocco through Algeria to Libya, while the North African gundi (C. gundi) also extends into Tunisia.
