Hi, please can the boffins out there advise which trees are more prolific around the various camps, eg. Jackal Berry - at Skukuza, Mopani - at Mopani (?), etc.

This list is from SANParks website:

Baobab, Red Bushwillow, Common Cluster Fig, Common Coral Tree, Delagoa Thorn Fever Tree, Lowveld Fig, Jackalberry, Knob Thorn Leadwood, Natal Mahogany, Marula, Monkey Orange, Mopane, Transvaal Mustard Tree, Lala Palm,
Raisin Bush, Sausage Tree, Tamboti, Round-leafed Teak.

Many thanks,
Ed

It is easier to refer to different ecozones than just in general "around each camp". The Kruger ecozone map is a very helpful tool in that respect.
