Mopani (tree form)
Shingwedzi camp is predomintly full of them. Although the shrub form is more widespread they do become trees as well.
The autumn colour of the leaves depends on rainfall and is often even evident in winter.
Tree mopani also displays the darkish very rough bark.
That's the problem with trees, from a distance most trees look excatly like that, a tree. Guess I'll have to make the ultimate sacrifice and go to Shingwedzi and have a closer look. Can you guys wait until early August for an answer?
