Really need to see closer pic of the leaves and fruit...... there are several it could be. But maybe somebody has been there and recognises it!

Possibly Sycamore Fig, those clumps of small "branches" are the stems for the fruit which grows any time of year.

Here's another tree that I'm hoping that someone can ID for me. I saw it in Mapungubwe in late October 2014.
