Uromastyx acanthinura inhabits the Saharan desert from the Saharan Atlas (Morocco, Tunisia) to the Sudan and from Mauritania to Algeria and Egypt. It is widespread throughout North Africa as a whole. Being a territorial species inhabiting a relatively harsh and unproductive habitat, it is fairly thinly spread over the areas it does inhabit and population densities may be low.
