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:

Jip I believe you are correct! It's the damaged Leadwood tree at Bangu waterhole, along the s90 east of Balule... :clap: (Pls verify the tree Imberbe?)

Northern loop of S52 below Tshanga close to the Shingwedzi river causeway (where a few years ago I suspect I saw a bh ...) .

It seems G@mespotter has forgotten about this quizz (again) despite my PM to remind him on 2 Nov... so I am taking the liberty .

Remember the question is what tree & where .
