The tree is a bit far from the main town of Tzaneen, where all the Magoebaskloof adventure is. It has fallen apart, don't know why. But it is not worth seeing, you'll waste your R25. It has been destroyed in half I think by nature...More

I really wanted to see this. Imagine my disappointment after driving out of our way on a really bad road. There is little or nothing to see. It is very sad, but life goes on. I wouldn't waste my time.

The boabab is still huge even though part of it has broken,would recommend pictures being taken from the right side or back of the tree.The bar is also still visible,the aside room is dark and smells.It could be better.

After a 1,5km dirt road, arriving at this great tree. Imagine the fabulous age of this tree, something like 1500-2000 yrs and see it's impressive size and still alive. It's allmost an eco system on it's own. A 1/4 part has broken off, but it...More
