Photo 4. Mopane (Colophospermum mopane), on badly eroded gravelly soils in the north-east Central District. Mopane is an excellent browse plant for cattle, with high protein levels, however, grazing is only of short duration during the rainy season and forage bulk and quality are generally very low for most of the year.
