This is a photo I captured at sunset just off of our Swala "tent" deck looking out at Tarangire National Park, Tanzania, Africa.
These trees are massive, and have branches that look more "root like" than a typical tree branch. The trees only produce leaves during the "wet season" and are bare during the "dry season" (as is shown here). The Baobab tree stores water in its fibrous trunk to survive the dry seasons. Elephants have been know to cause great damage to these trees when they can not find any other source of water.
