Here's another tree for which I need ID help. This one I saw in Marakele in early April 2012.

Thanks EJ and BB87 — did you perhaps mean Albizia petersiana? Unfortunately I don't have another photo of this particular tree :redface:

Any chance of zooming a bit on the original photo and posting? Gets round the fact that I cannot zoom on the low resolution one here.....

As long as those are not thorns visible, it is Albizia petersiana or many-stemmed false-thorn
