This week's #TreeTuesday is the magnificent Vachellia sieberiana, a member of the Fabaceae or pea family. It is also known as the Paperbark Thorn, papierbasdoring (Afrikaans), Mphoka (North Sotho), umNganduzi (Siswati), Mokha, Morumosetlha (Tswana), Musaunga (Venda), umKhamba (Zulu) or Nkowankowa (Tsonga). This species is distributed from South Africa northwards to Ethiopia where it grows in woodland, wooded grassland and along riverbanks.
All good things are wild and free 🐾🐾🐾
Be kind to every kind, not just mankind. During our wild drive through this large reserve we came across this herd of elephants. Only on close inspection we saw the tiny baby elephant the herd was so fiercely protecting.
Welgevonden Game Reserve is a 36,000ha private game reserve in the Waterberg District, of the Limpopo Province of South Africa. A pleasant 2.5-hour drive, or an easy 45-minute flight from Johannesburg into one of the airstrips, makes Welgevonden one of the most accessible premier malaria-free wilderness reserves in the country.

THE KING IS ALIVE. LONG LIVE THE KING!!! It was our last day in the park. We were going to leave via the tar road but at the last minute we decided to opt for the gravel road linking Crocodile Bridge gate and exit via Malelane gate. We were not disappointed. Along the way and casually striding with purpose this beautiful specimen of creation walks by our car.
I just love the look on his face. This photo epitomizes the bushveld for me. @getawaymagazine #BUSHVELD#KRUGERNATIONALPARK#SAFARI#LION#theking
The Mirror Room (Executive King) - A very large spacious room with open plan bathroom and separate toilet. This luxury space with high ceilings and mirrors has two balconies overlooking the natural bush-veld behind the manor house. The outside double doors leads down to the vegetable garden. #guestbedroom#luxuryhomes#balconyview#highceilings#bushveld

Throwback to @neohunter_sa 's once-in-a-lifetime Klipspringer... What interesting animals those little things are! One almost only sees them in pairs, they walk and jump on the very tips of their tiny hooves, they are very alert and to find one as old and big as the ram Mario got here is the absolute exception! Once again Mario: Congrats and Waidmannsheil!🌿🌿 - Definitely one to remember! 😉🔥
