What on earth is a "Xanatseni" ?!? :big_eyes:


No correct answers yet .

Phalaborwa & Mopani both fall within the Xanatseni region . The KNP is divided into 3 administrative regions , the northern Xanatseni region from the Limpopo down to the Olifants, the central Nkayeni region from the Olifants down to the Sabie river and the southern Morula region from the Sabie down to the Crocodile river .

The trunk is similar to maroela in some ways , but the crown makes me think otherwise . I have the pic on desktop and I am slowly making my way through Piet v Wyks "Field Guide To The Trees of KNP" .
