Symbols of Africa!

For me these are two true symbols for the African bush: Giraffe and Fever Tree!  The Thanda guests on my vehicle enjoyed this beautiful scene in the morning sun.

The Fever Tree (Acacia xanthophloea) is a species of Acacia native to eastern and southern Africa. The trees grow to a height of 15–25 m. The characteristic bark is smooth, powdery and greenish-yellow in color  It is one of the few trees where photosynthesis takes place in the bark. Fever trees are fast-growing and short-lived.
