Aloe chabaudi


The aloe chabaudi grow in the eastern regions of the Zambezi Region (formerly the Caprivi Strip), south-east of the old Liambezi Lake which is to the west of the small settlements of Ngoma and Bukalo. The high rainfall associated with that area combined with the clay soil favoured by Colophospermum mopane is ideal for this species, as the lush vegetation allows it to grow under other plants. Another micro-habitat is against the lower sections of termites hills, as long as they are higher than immediate plant life.

Frost is a natural enemy of A. chabaudi. Their very fine leaves and over-watering may result in them growing too large which subsequently damages them. Flowers vary in colour from yellow or light orange south of the Chobe River to red nearer Victoria Falls, blooming between May and July. This attracts a number of sunbirds which affect the life of the flower themselves. This is an endangered species in the country, mostly due to the clearing of land for human habitation.
