The common duiker, also known as the grey or bush duiker, is a small antelope found in everywhere in Africa south of the Sahara, excluding the Horn of Africa and the rainforests of the central and western parts of the continent. Generally, they are found in habitats with sufficient vegetation cover to allow them to hide - savanna and hilly areas, including the fringes of human settlements.

Colouration of this species varies widely over its vast geographic range. There are 14 subspecies described ranging from chestnut in forested areas of Angola to grizzled grey in northern savannas and light brown shades in arid regions.
