The bizarre fruit of the sausage tree

It’s one of the most bizarre fruits in the botanical kingdom and its shape has helped to name the tree it hangs from. Meet the oddly-shaped and occasionally lethal pendulous fruit of the sausage tree.

Buffaloes bounce back in Greater Kruger, after drought devastated populations. Buffaloes play a critical ecosystem role as bulk grazers, and also keep ticks away from other animals.

Since first being spotted in the Timbavati way back at the start of the millennium, the magnificent bull elephant known as Ezulwini has become legendary, and very much part of the landscape in Balule Private Nature Reserve.
