As part of his occasional series visiting the trees listed in Lyn Mullin’s excellent book “Historic Trees of Zimbabwe”, Gus shows us a fine example of Baikiaea plurijuga, the Zambezi Teak, situated at the Hwange Safari Lodge in north-western Zimbabwe. This is one of the few remaining full-size examples of its type, the majority having been logged out in the early 20th Century to make railway sleepers.
