The Sunland ‘Big Baobab’ is in Modjadjiskloof in Limpopo
Province, South Africa and is famous internationally for being the widest
of its species in the world. Africa is symbolised by these magnificent
trees. The Sunland Big Baobab is carbon dated to be around 6000 years
old. The Sunland Baobab has even made the front page of the Wall Street
When baobabs become a thousand years old, they begin to hollow inside.
In the Big Baobab this has resulted in wonderful caverns and caves, where
the world famous Baobab Tree Bar now amaze visitors.
The Big Baobab is on the farm Sunland and mangos. At the
Big Baobab we can accommodate 20 people in 5 chalets. We also offer
quadbiking on our own quads or you can bring your own.

Doug and Heather van Heerden bought the farm in 1989 and cleared half,
planting mangoes and Palm trees. The tree is important both historically
and ecologically and is home to many animals and birds, as well as providing
food for many others. The van Heerdens fiercely protect the tree and the
surroundings – woe betide anyone who doesn’t share their views!
Day visitors to the tree: R15.00 per person. Kids under 3 free!!
