Sunland Baobab Tree Bar

Located on the Sunland Farm near Modjadjiskloof in South Africa, the Sunland Baobab or the Pub Tree as it is also called is a bar that is quite unique since it is placed in a huge hollow baobab tree which is 6000 years old.

The pub was placed in the tree in 1933 and there are 15 seats in it with the tree’s circumference spreading over 108 feet. The tree was naturally split into two connected pieces and the cavernous hollows inside it were formed when the tree reached 1000 years in age. The passage connecting the hollows is the actual pub.

The interior of the pub has a 13 foot ceiling and there are wooden benches and shelves of souvenirs to tell the tree’s story and the story of the farm owned by the Van Heerden family who also built a bed and breakfast on the site.

The large branches soaring up to 75 feet provide enough shading for the area outside which hosts the restaurant area for special events.
