Sjoe... it is becoming harder to think of trees! :hmz:

Ok... I first managed to get an ID of this tree at Nkuhlu thanks to the label. Since that day I have managed to find it around Kruger particularly in the rest camps with some lovely specimens around Biyamiti.

The name contains the colour of a Wahlbergs Eagle and a magnificence of a certain pachyderm feature!

I thought teak was used for sleeperwood... the only teak I know of in Kruger is the Round leafed Teak or Pterocarpus rotundifolia... Although I am sure this is not the right answer!

Not teak, that would be too easy :hmz:
Will be seeing some in Punda in December.

LOL! I guess Mopane (Colophospermum mopane) would be wrong too??? That is pretty much the only tree I know up near Punda... and the wood is hard enough for sleepers...

The timber is marketed under a name begining with "C" but common name begins with "P"..so not Mopane....but get your thinking around Punda Maria. :whistle:
