In brief: Depends

T. B. Rhodesiense (east african sleeping sickness) is found in areas of eastern and southeastern africa.
Over 95% of the cases of human infection occur in tanzania, uganda, malawi, and zambia. T. B. Gambiense (west african sleeping sickness) is found predominantly in central africa and in limited areas of west africa. Most of the sleeping sickness in africa is caused by this form of the parasite.
