This is a very common species, widespread over most savannah Africa. There are about 100 Acacia species in Africa. This one can appear with flat or umbrella-shaped crown. When young, it curiously looks like a triangular shrub. The combination of the different age shapes gives the Eastern Africa savannah its typical look. Pods and leaves are highly nutritional. Elephants also eat the bark. Giraffes browse the foliage careless of the dense thorns.
