Wow. They are all wonderful. Especially the one with the red sun!

Yes, I zoomed in somewhat with that one. The red sun over the water is always amazing on the Zambezi

Its a special place, isn’t it?

Banyan I presume? (The amazing tree.)

I think its a kind of fig, but Im going to have to ask around!

It looks similar to a Mysore Fig but more like a Banyan to me. I’m not informed on the subject, just seen both.

Ive had some replies! Apparently a Banyan is a type of fig. Everyone is fairly sure this is a ficus of some kind, just hard to tell exactly which one. From where its located, they all think it must not be native to that place (on the Zambezi)
