PHOTOS: BAOBABS

These Baobabs are scattered throughout the Limpopo Province of South Africa and are hovering around the 2,000 year old mark.

(visit my week 1 posting for the full story on the baobabs.)

1) The Sagole Baobab
Probably the oldest Baobab, but unconfirmed.


2) The Sunland Baobab
Yes, there is a bar inside the tree.


3) The Pafuri Baobab
This tree is inside the Kruger game preserve and requires an escort of armed rangers.


4) The Glencoe Baobab
This tree was partially uprooted hundreds of years ago. The roots became branches, creating its unusually symmetrical form.
