These giant trees live to be thousands of years old! Our guide estimated the one pictured to be around almost 1000 years.
Was this in Manyara park or tarangire?

Fun fact! The trunk of the baobab tree can grow so huge that one tree in South Africa, known as 'Big Baobab', has a circumference of 47 meters and even a bar for 60 people inside the trunk! Baobabs grow in arid regions and store massive amounts of water in their stems to cope with seasonal droughts. https://upload.facebook.com/projectnoah/...
