The majestic Baobab tree is a symbol of life in the arid African Savannah, where little can thrive. The tree absorbs and stores water in its mammoth trunk, enabling it to produce a nutrient-rich fruit in the dry season, hence its name “The Tree of Life.” Baobab trees can live up to 5,000 years and take 200 years to start blooming and bearing fruits. Its flowers open at night once a year for a few nights only.
