It is a fun tree bar. The bar’s website states, “When baobabs become a thousand years old, they begin to hollow inside. In the Big Baobab this has resulted in wonderful caverns and caves, where the world-famous Baobab Tree Bar now amazes visitors.”

But don’t worry, this bar didn’t ruin the tree, it was already naturally hollow on the inside.

Besides its remarkable dimensions, this baobab tree is also one of the oldest trees on earth. Carbon dating has estimated it to be around 6,000 years old. What an incredible sight to see. I must have a drink inside this incredibly ancient tree.
