May be a little out of our area, but can anyone identify the beautiful tree in the attached photograph. The photo was taken at Kruger National Park in South Africa, but even the staff couldn't tell us what it was called.




I'm certainly not sure but it could be a 'Pride of Barbados' tree (Caesalpinia pulcherrima).

Looks a lot like a Poinciana - Delonix regia.

Cannot really see it but could it be a Amorpha fruticosa Indigo, false Indigo tree?

I think we'll all have to travel there and see it in 'the flesh' to decide. Whose paying? LOL.
