Hi Lemonbalm I thought it wasn't an Acacia but I don't remember Combretum flowers looking like the ones in the picture.

These aren't very clear pix as it was a foggy, rainy day and I took the pix through the windscreen, but can anyone ID this tree with pink flowers? Seen along the N4 en route to Nelspruit -- I think perhaps on the Schoemanskloof Pass? -- in April 2016.

It's a Bauhinia, not sure which one though. It's either variegata or purpurea. Not indigenous, it's an alien tree.

Here's another tree that I'd like ID help for. Seen on the Dzundwini loop in April 2016.

Here are two more trees that I need ID help for, both seen in the Pafuri area of KNP in mid-April 2016.
