We had one paddock full of Mopane trees, and I could always rely on it for very late winter grazing. (Browse + also helped!) And if I wanted to see a kudu, the Mopane was the place to go!
The leaves of the Mopane trees change throughout the year. They can be bright green, red orange and brown. What I don’t like about a Mopane grove is driving in amongst them when we are working. Don’t drive over a burnt Mopane spike – something to do with the carbon on the burnt end – a stump can slip through your tyre as easily as a knife into butter.
