Sorry for intruding naturelover, it looks like a Geigeria sp.

Thanks so much AG. I did some googling and I think that it might be Geigeria ornativa?

Can anyone help with an ID for this flower? Seen in KTP in early November 2012. (And apologies for the strange blueness, my camera somehow got set on tungsten without my knowing it :redface: )

Arks I also have seen this plant against the road as I was entering Upington,unfortunately I could not take a pic at that stage but also wants to know what plant it was, so I did a bit of googling.
Could only find the genus name Adenium.
Got it Arks, Adenium oleifolium
