Baines Baobabs

Named after explorer Thomas Baines, are Baines Baobabs; millennia old baobab trees scattered across the salt pans of Botswana. These ancient wonders are described as looking like upside-down trees with the branches sporting an appearance of a root system; most of the year not baring any leaves. The trees have not changed over the last 150 years making it almost identical to what Thomas Baines would have seen on his pioneering mission.

An unmissable photo opportunity for those photographers; a silhouette best seen in the evening at sunset but stunning to see all day (and year) around. Accessible by everyone yet completely unspoilt by destruction, these ancient trees stand tall and unchanged.

Due to the age of these trees, they have warped and taken up incredibly bizarre shapes and lumps to boast their wisdom. The smooth, almost fibreglass-like texture of the reddish-brown trees makes them truly unique as though they were out of fantasy.
