Baines Baobabs

Baines Baobabs were named after the famous painter and explorer Thomas Baines, who painted this unusual group of baobab trees on the 22nd May 1862 during his journey through Southern Africa.

The seven giant trees, also known as the Seven Sisters, dominate a small island on the edge of the open grassless Kudiakam Pan, which, although dry for most of the year, is transformed into a massive sheet of water during the rainy seasons. Nature takes over and the pan becomes dotted by water lilies, attracting an array of bird life, in the process creating a spectacle of great beauty.

Little has changed in the 146 years since Thomas Baines painted these baobabs. There has been virtually no change to the trees and the scene still captivates visitors as it did Thomas Baines centuries ago.
