Bar inside a 6,000 years old Tree

This is not just another tree! It is a bar in the trunk of a Baobab. It has been created in a huge 72ft high tree in this garden in Limpopo, South Africa, to keep thirsty locals happy. But tourists flock to see the amazing bar inside the hollow 155ft circumference of the trunk.

More than 7,000 visitors from all over the world come to see the majestic Baobab each year and have a drink in its bar, which has four metre high ceilings and comfortably seats up to 15 people. The tree even has its own cellar, with natural ventilation to keep the beer cool.

Carbon-dating, which can determine the age of organic materials, has shown the anicent tree is about. "This tree is likely to be older than the Giza Pyramids of Egypt," said Heather van Heerden, owner of Sunland Farm. link
