Photos on the website should please be updated to reflect the current state of the place, especially the accommodation. The place is not well maintained. Not all bathrooms had warm water and a promise to come and fix it on the day was not honoured....More

It's about one and half hours drive from Polokwane, it's fun to learn about the biggest Baobab tree, it's stories, to take photos in front of it, and to climb it. It also has a pub inside the tree.
