Here is the painting I finished, commissioned by a client from a recent trip that he took. This is a Kachere tree located at Protea Hotel Safari Lodge, Chisamba."http://www.proteahotels.com/protea-hotel-safari-lodge.html"
Kachere tree is a fig tree. Once it grows it produce a big tree with lots of shades. The fig species has a significant presence throughout Africa, with 112 species while it also has a number of distinctive characteristics.
The trees provide a number of benefits to animal species and humans alike. The fruit is enjoyed by elephants, antelope, monkeys, birds and bats, while leopards love to lie on their branches and the natural holes and crevices created by the trunk provide habitation for a number of species including warthog.
