“Sunland’s Baobab is 22 meters high, and is some 47 meters in circumference.

Carbon dating has been used to estimate the Big Baobab’s age at ± 6000 years. To put this in perspective the tree is possibly older than the Giza Pyramids and was certainly here thousands of years before the birth of Jesus Christ.

When the first leaves sprouted the Sahara Desert was still lush and green and our Iron Age ancestors were roaming the land.”
