Sunland Nursery is home to the largest Baobab Tree in the world and possibly the only tree with a bar inside – known as “The Tree Bar” or “The Baobab Bar”. The “Big Baobab”, is situated in the foothills of the legendary Modjadji Cycad Reserve in Modjadjiskloof (previously Duiwelskloof) near Tzaneen in Limpopo Province, South Africa and is famous internationally for being the widest of its species in the world and, having a Bar inside.

The Sunland “Big Baobab Tree Bar” is 22 meters high and 47 meters in circumference at the base and has naturally hollowed out providing space for “The Tree Bar”. It has been carbon dated to be around 6 000 years old. The “Big Baobab Tree Bar” has even made the front page of the Wall Street Journal!

Day visitors are welcome and there is accommodation in the form of thatched “jungalows” with en-suite bathrooms, a pool, bush spa and a tree house.

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.

The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.

Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.

In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.
