Some different baobabs, these are from Lac Tsimanampetsotsa. Sorry, I don't know what species they are, but I do know that 7 of the 8 species in the world are found in Madagascar - and 6 of them only

Were there ever a shot which so forcefully reminds us of our place in the biosphere?

The kids running underscores how immense those baobabs are.

I greatly enjoyed your Madagascar baobab images.

Most travellers who have visited Ruaha N.P. in southern Tanzania will be familiar with this vista. This image was taken in July 2016 (13.10) and always reminds me of our all too short stay in paradise. The baobab in the foreground clearly shows a significant amount of damage caused by elephants but continues to flourish every year. The Great Ruaha River in the background was not flowing during our visit but consisted of a series of unconnected pools (some quite large and deep), which attracted a wide variety of wildlife in significant numbers.

@@johnweir Ha! Yes we have! Although I like your images better than mine :) My dad and I traveled there a while back---I loved Baobab Alley although there was a rather large piece of equipment parked in the middle we had to avoid for the pictures...a mystical place indeed.

Larabanga Mosque near Mole National Park is built from mud and believed to be the oldest mosque in West Africa, as can be seen the baobab tree is growing right against the wall of the mosque.
