Leaf Baobab Tree and Buffalo Combo

The area of Modjadjiskloof, Limpopo, South Africa is home to the largest Baobab in the world;

All Baobabs are deciduous trees ranging in height from 5 to 20 meters;

The Baobab tree is a strange looking tree that grows in low-lying areas in Africa and Australia. It can grow to enormous sizes and carbon dating indicates that they may live to be 3,000 years old;

One ancient hollow Baobab tree in Zimbabwe is so large that up to 40 people can shelter inside its trunk;

Various Baobabs have been used as a shop, a prison, a house, a storage barn and a bus shelter;
