Baobabs in Durban

Photographer Roger Jardine is looking for information on baobab trees in Durban.  While out of their natural habitat, there are a few of these majestic trees growing in the city.  He is documenting them in a book he is currently working on.  Trees already identified include those in Sea View, DHS, KwaMashu, Queensburgh, the ICC, the Botanical Gardens and Musgrave Centre.  Any other suggestions would be appreciated …

    Hi Roger there is a beautiful smallish baobab tree in a culdesac near Forest Drive, La lucia. I cannot remember the name of the road. I am not in SA at the moment but will be back at the end of July so if you are interested I could get the name of the road for you then. I am aware of the baobabs mentioned above except for the KwaMashu one. I would be very interested in getting the names of the roads of the baobabs in Sea View, Queensburgh and KwaMashu as I would love to visit them again and am not sure if I remember where they are.
