The Sunland Baobab tree is surprisingly large, about 22 meters high and about 33 meters in circumference. There is a cavity in the trunk of the tree, and a pub is installed in the cavity. Cavities begin to form naturally when baobab trees are over 1,000 years old. However, the Sunland Baobab cavity is a large one that took about 5,000 years to build and surprises tourists.
The pub has a capacity of 15 people. The height to the ceiling is about 4 meters, so you won't feel cramped. Also, the temperature inside the cavity is kept almost constant, so it seems that the inside of the pub is relatively cool even on hot days. Taking advantage of this property, it is said that wine is put in another cavity and used as a wine cellar.
At the time of the event, a table will be set up on the outside of the tree. At this time, the branches of the baobab tree act as parasols that provide shade to customers.
The pub opened in 1933, 80 years ago. The current owner is the Van Heerden family, who purchased Sunland Farm in 1989. Heerden also runs a B & B near the pub.
Sunland Baobab is not only one of the oldest trees in the world, but also the largest attraction in the region.
