Tree #70 Historic Trees of Zimbabwe – the Newtonia Grove at Nyahungwe

By July 28, 2019 No Comments

At a remote spot in the northern sector of Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe, stand a grove of uncommon Newtonia hildebrandtii trees. The grove has a mystical, almost supernatural feel to it. Home to elephants, kudu, waterbuck and baboons, it is rarely visited by humans, and is one of only two known examples of the tree’s occurrence in the country. Not surprisingly, the grove features prominently in Lyn Mullin’s book “Historic Trees of Zimbabwe”.

Join Gus, the African Plant Hunter, as he shows us round this very unusual spot in a beautiful part of one of Zimbabwe’s most iconic wildlife areas.
