Baobab Tree Bar & Wine Cellar

Limpopo , South Africa
27 15 309-9039

Having a cocktail in the hollow trunk of a huge 6,000-year-old baobab tree is a surreal and elemental experience. The cavity of the tree is cool—a natural respite from the oppressive heat of South Africa’s Limpopo province—and has likely provided shelter for many wanderers over time. (The current owners, the van Heerdens, have discovered centuries-old Bushmen artifacts.) Now there’s a bar, benches, even a dartboard. The surrounding Sunland farm has another treehouse and bar and five thatched “jungalows” for rent.

What to Order: A stein of whatever’s on tap that day.
