Ombulantu Giant Baobabs

The Ombulantu baobab tree or "Omukwa waaMbalantu" as it is known amongst the local Owambo communities is one with a rich history.  Towering to the sky near the village of Uutapi, the tree was utilized as a chapel, hiding place and post office. A quaint coffee shop now occupies the hollowed out trunk of King Nashilongo’s baobab and also boasts a small craft shop with camping and barbeque facilities. The countryside is dotted with other baobab trees, notable is the colossal Sir Howard’s Baobab, named for the first South African administrator in 1916. The sight is truly dreamlike with beautiful views and stunning scenery.
