Cape Chestnut in Flower at RiverBend Lodge

The Cape Chestnut Calodendrum capense (Wlidekastaiing) is described in "Tree's of Southern Africa" (Keith Coates Palgrave) as "a small to tall tree varying from 7 to 20 m in height, depending upon the habitat..".
This beautiful specimen (at least 20 m high) is currently in bloom - and makes for a glorious sight against the backdrop of the Rooiwalle.
We will bring you more of the great specimens of the various tree's on RiverBend and the Nyathi Concession of the Addo Elephant National Park.
