Digital Calendar photo description

African ChristmasTree

Early morning in the Okavango Delta, Botswana as the sun was setting creating a reddish horizon and with the evening star out and the moon rising, the giant baobab tree created a symbolic image of an African Christmas Tree.

Baobab– Adansonia

The Baobab Tree is also known as the tree of life. The cork-like bark and huge stem are fire resistant and are used for making cloth and rope. The leaves are used as condiments and medicines. The fruit, called “monkey bread”,is edible, and full of Vitamin C. The tree can store 120 000 litres of water. Radio-carbon dating has measured the age of some Baobab trees at over 2 000 years old. For most of the year, the tree is leafless, and looks very much like it has its roots sticking up in the air.
