    Acacia raddiana inhabits the three major valleys of the north western Gilf Kebir, Jebel Arkenu, and all major and minor valleys of Jebel Uweinat, including higher altitudes. It appears intermingled with Acacia tortilis (which some consider to be a sub-species). In middle Karkur Talh A. raddiana forms a dense savana like grove, while in the other valleys of Uweinat and the Gilf Kebir it is more sporadic.
