Where do cheetahs live?

Africa

Explanation

Cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus) historically lived throughout Africa, the Middle East, and Southern Asia.

However, most of the remaining wild cheetah populations are located in sub-Saharan Africa (south of the Saharan Desert) with some smaller populations in Northern Africa and one isolated population still living in Iran.

The largest remaining African Cheetah population is located in the region of Namibia and Botswana (Southern Africa), while the second largest population survives in Kenya and Tanzania (East Africa).
