The baobab tree is synonymous with Limpopo Province. It appears in the logos of the Limpopo Provincial Government and the Limpopo Tourism Agency, conjures up images of nature in its purest form and lends itself to legend and myth. Sometimes known as the “upside down” tree because the gods supposedly planted it with its roots facing the sky, the baobab also provides sustenance and shelter for humans and animals. Some trees are several thousand years old. LIMPOPO BUSINESS 2018/19 4
