What we love about this tree:
It's the largest tree in an area of flat farmfields, and it stands out like a giant tower
The central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh is home to the incredible palace compound of Orchha. This giant baobab tree is, to my best reckoning, dating from the 1500s and was brought across from Southern Africa to India by Arab traders.

The knowledge and experience of Yoav in climbing, caring and investigating these forest giants, meant that Yoav as our guide was superb. We learnt a lot about Tasmanian forest… read more practices and alos about these giant trees. Yoav is friendly and interesting. Go and see these trees, come to understand the protection and care that they need (and don’t necessarily have) and the globally unique experience that Yoav offers. I am still in awe of the size and age of the forest giants that we saw. I will never forget this special day.
