Could someone please help with identification of this tree? I am always so fascinated by how the branches seem to twist and turn.

Hi Meandering Mouse

The tree in the foreground is the Apple Leaf - Philenoptera violacea formally Lonchocarpus capassa
These trees are extremely slow growing and should Elephant take a liking to them this can alter their growth in many strangely shaped ways.

Thanks Ross :thumbs_up: I thought the leaves looked Apple Leaf, but then the branches confused me.

This beautiful tree sighted on H1-4 near Satara in Kruger during Dec'13. Is this a Ficus sycamore? :hmz:

Kaapsedraai this could be a Red-leafed Rock Fig. I'm not familiar with the area, but the tree is a Fig of sorts and it does look like Red-leaf
