I have no idea if this is the correct name for them, but in October, these trees are covered with flame-coloured flowers and look as if they are on fire. The first time I went to Malawi was in an October and as we were coming in to land, I could see these trees everywhere. I asked the lady sitting next to me what kind of trees they were and she said, "They are flamboyant trees." Which is certainly apt, even if not the real name of them.
Here's another picture:

Aren't the trees fabulous?
