Great blog James. Trees are my favourite. The leadwood is awesome for photographs. The trees I love most are the Boabab and Fever tree.

I have an entire album of just TREES of South Africa. While I love the animals and the birds, I too have become fascinated by the beauty of the trees.

James what are you going to do when your beloved Tree falls over, be it by a Jumbo or the wind or just does???? I must say that your pictures of it are lovely & it lends itself to being photographed with or without “adornment” 🙂

What wonderful photographs! While all are pleasing the one that stands out for me is the Nyelethi on the branch!

Thanks James. One of the reasons I love returning to Londolozi are the trees I cannot see in the San Francisco area. Each time I am able to visit favorites.

Great blog James and beautiful photographs. I loved all the different trees on Londolozi and took many pictures of them while there.

So agree with you about trees and other plants in the bush. SO many shapes and sizes and a huge variety of colour. I am quite happy to sit in a Landrover and just see trees and bush and not much in the way of animals and birds, although if the animals and birds ARE there, it makes the trip an absolute joy! There is a SMELL and FEEL about the Bush one gets nowhere-else. It’s so exciting …

There is something incredibly beautiful about an old, bare Leadwood tree. I had not thought about an Ent in years… yes, the Hobbit Tree does look very much like what an Ent should look like.
