​A Splash of Colour Midwinter

There is something completely magical at this time of year. The usually dull and fairly barren Impala Lily, Adenium multiform, comes to life, sprouting fusia pink flowers in clusters at the end of it’s short stocky branches. When everything in the bush is covered in a thick dusty blanket and appears to be totally dormant the Impala lily shuns the winter and blossoms in a brilliant fashion, providing not only nectar for sunbirds but succulent feeding for the browsers. Although we have a few of these pink beauties around Tanda Tula safari Camp, we also find many growing wild in the Timbavati, and it is always a delight to see guest’s reactions to the surprise of this magnificent flowering plant amongst its desolate counterparts.
