The Limpopo Baobab Tree
The Baobab tree is the icon of Africa. Often called the ‘up side down
tree’ because of it’s haphazard branches, it is however one of the most
magnificent trees on the African plains. The baobab tree dots the
landscape of Limpopo with its majestic presence and seeing this tree in
its natural environment is a must for every tourist who comes to South
Local people protect the tree because of it’s importance in their daily
lives. The tree provides shelter from the sun, it’s leaves can be eaten
like spinach, it’s fruit provide a rich source of Vitamin C, it’s bark can
be used to make rope and its seeds for making oil.
Around every Baobab tree live a host of animals. Monkeys clamber up
its branches, leopards are sometimes seen resting on a limb, parrots
and hornbills nest in holes in the tree and bats eat the pollen from the
Where it all started
A few years ago I made a Baobab tree for Christmas when I could not get hold of the
traditional pine tree to decorate. The tree that I made captured the imagination of
everybody who visited me and I soon got an order for an almost life-size tree to display in a
shopping centre. From here on the orders started rolling in and I have not looked back. I
now produce trees for local curio shops, lodges and corporate companies. I am now looking at
the European market including exhibiting at the ‘Artigiano in Fiera’, Italy.
The production of these Baobab trees has now become my passion. This has allowed me to
create jobs and to develop the creative skills of artists in the local community.
How the trees can be used
The trees are ideal to be used as indoor décor in rooms and areas where one wants to create
a sense of Africa. They can also be used as ‘African Christmas trees.
The trees come in a variety of sizes: 10cm, 25cm, 50cm, 1m, 1 ½ m and larger. Prices vary
with size and cost of transport and packaging.
