The Doum Palm (in Kiswahili: Mkoche) is very common in the coastal area of Tanzania. The leaves are used by the locals to braid carpets, baskets and ropes, while the monkeys enjoy the really hard fruits of the Mkoche trees
Mangrove systems for a big part of the Swahili Coast and are protected. They grow really slow and they grow in half salty/half sweet water. This makes the wood extremely resistible to termites and other insects
The Baobab trees are the giants of Africa along with the elephants. Both of them are amazingly huge and impressive. Because the wood inside is extremely wet (that's how the tree is keeping water for the dry times), it is no good for use as wood, so these trees have a good chance not get chopped for firewood or else
The fruits of the Baobabs are popular with monkeys and elephants. Also dried you can use the flesh aroud the seeds as a nice ingredient for juices. The oil from the seeds is used as cosmetics
