This tree is verry high ,so could not get a nice closeup on the leaves but if you look carefully on the pic ,from the main stem there is a thin little succer growing out from it wich is a good representation of the rest of the tree's leaves.there is other tree's right next to it so there is many leaves arround but look for the thin succer growing out of the main stem.

Hi Forestgump/Johan,

This is an interesting one - nice challenge. There are a couple of options:
Breonadia salicina (Mingerhout) - bark looks right but leaves seem too short.
Rauvolfia caffra (Quinine tree) - trunk and bark looks wrong though.
Sterculia murex (Lowveld Chestnut) - distribution/locality is wrong.

What do you think FG? I have sent it on to a friend for another opinion. Should have an answer tomorrow.

This pic gives you a better idea of the leaves,i dont think it is a jakkalsbesie,the leaves does not match although the trunk does.
