Baobab trees are a true wonder of nature, and nowhere is this more evident than in the savanna regions of Beitbridge and Chiredzi in Zimbabwe.
With over 613,277 baobabs in Beitbridge alone, each resident could own up to 6.5 trees each! But it’s not just about quantity – baobab fruits are also packed with important minerals and vitamins that can optimize digestion, reduce inflammation, and regulate glucose levels.
In the Save Valley Conservancy, visitors can marvel at some of the country’s oldest baobabs, including the Mokore Giant Baobab which is over 1,098 years old!
The Matendere Big Baobab is another must-see attraction at over 1,529 years old and standing tall at 70 feet with a girth of over 80 feet. And let’s not forget about the Humani Bedford Old Baobab which may be as old as 1,800 years!
But it’s not just about admiring these ancient giants – visitors can also enjoy baobab fruit as a snack or blended with milk and sugar for a refreshing drink. And for those looking for a unique experience, try roasted and ground baobab seed coffee which is said to have aphrodisiac properties.
So why not plan your next trip to Zimbabwe’s Beitbridge and Chiredzi regions to discover the wonderlands of baobabs? With so many trees to see and enjoy, there truly is a tree for every resident!
