Hi all :D

I decided to create a new, different kind of quiz... Basically meant to learn people more about the bush in Kruger, more specifically trees. Also aimed at testing the ability to remember detail..... :twisted:

I'm afraid this quiz is meant for the absolute Kruger fanatics who have been to Kruger VERY often and start recognizing trees as landmarks :whistle: Specific trees are indeed landmarks in Kruger, and I thought it might just be fun to single out a few.

You HAVE to state (1) what type of tree it is (even if it's merely a tree stem) and more or less (2) where. If at a waterhole / dam, be specific, if just randomly along a road more of less the area.

This quiz is for all of us to learn.. I'm BY NO MEANS a tree expert, so I will quickly check what type of tree it is when I confirm the location. Suspect there will be instances where I'm wrong, then please help me out. I want to learn as well :)

I will only comment every 36 hours or so, so have patience in order to allow people to think / do some research.

NB: Surroundings, the type of tree and vegetation around might help you to identify a specific tree in Kruger. Please refrain from participating in this quiz when you do not see the point of it. It's kind of a test :D

To start off easy :thumbs_up:

Nope GS - this is central Kruger - but not on one of the popular gravel roads (ie S100, S39 :naughty: )

Thanks Nungu... No leaves makes it more of a challenge. I have difficulties remebering such 'donga' but I'll give it a shot, how about the s89 towards Balule? :roll:

:slap: It was taken in the dead of winter GS - hence no leaves... not near Balule....

It is a series of donga's as you say - all filled with water (or should I say mud) - even during most winters... Here's a pic taken of another donga, closer to the road and more to the left of the 1st pic... both were the same herd of ellies though :hmz:
