I visited this tree when I was 10 years old...42 years later
I visited the tree again a couple of days ago....It is fantastic
and should be preserved with all might.

Danie Binneman

As a young girl of 5, I first saw the Big Baobab when we lived in the then,
Pietersburg.  In March 2011, 39 years later, I returned to visit the tree again. 
It was an overwhelming experience and something I will never forget. 
I also got to spend some time with your white german shepherd, just
my husband and I, and your dog, sitting under a tree dating back
thousands of years.  A day I will never forget.  Thank you for cherishing
this incredible giant.

All I can say is, Thank you very much to Doug and
Heather. We had a great easter weekend. Your hospitality is out of this
world, We could not choose a better place to go quad biking for the
weekend. The trail in the mountains is awesome. I would encourage
everyone to try it out, but beware,you guys out there with the fast
bikes that likes to rock n roll, you will have to gun them very hard and
know your stuff to keep up with that monster Yamaha Rhino of Doug's.
The tree is definately the most beatiful I've ever seen, the size is
unbeliveable and the feeling that runs through your body when you stand
next to this giant is incredible.
We will definately visit soon again and bring more people to share this
wonderfull experiance with.
Keep up the good work there you are doing a great job there.

Riaan Celliers and family.

I am an American currently living and working in
South Africa (KwaZulu Natal). I happened across your website, and I
am in awe. I have seen the California Redwoods, which are magnificent
and humbling; but your single tree, with it's confirmed age and size,
is like nothing else in the world. I don't know if I'll have an
opportunity to visit, but to stand in the presence of a living entity
this ancient must be quite an experience. Take care of Mr. Baobab,
and maybe he'll live another 6000 years.

We are sitting here in Seattle WA, USA, watching the
snow outside and remembering fondly the fun and exciting week we had
staying and riding quads at Sunland. We hope Doug and family are doing
well. We stand ready to show you Quad bike riding in the USA anytime you
win the lottery!

What a restful wonderful weekend. Doug thanks for the ‘tame’ out ride for the ladies. I have certainly become more excited about riding. The girls enjoyed themselves as well. We WILL be back! Thanks!!

Zimbabwe and Johannesburg contingents had a fantastic stay. The meetings were productive and positive, the food home-cooked and delicious, the ride-awesome, and our hosts and staff were friendly and attentive!
Thanks, you guys rock!

Great weekend for the family. Sand, mud, bikes, what more can you ask for? Evenings under the tree with too much food and wine will be remembered everyday in the gym. Very relaxing and friendly atmosphere- we will be back!
