This South African 1000 Year Old Tree Has An Unusual Secret Inside It


Sunland Baobab is a 1000 year old well-known South African gigantic baobab tree which is located in Sunland Farm, Limpopo and there is something awesome hiding inside of it – the reason it is also known as the “pub tree”. The Sunland Big Baobab is quite remarkable because of the size of its hollowed trunk which is so big you could fit a bar inside it… and someone did.

Yes! Inside a tree with a massive circumference of 33.4 metres (110 feet) is a massive space where Carbon investigations were carried out that suggest that there have been fires within the hollow of the trunk in 1650 AD, 1750–1780, 1900, 1955 and 1990 before it was turned into a pub and wine cellar in 1993 by the owners of Sunland farm making it even more of an unusual landmark for tourists.
