Visit to Baines' Baobabs


| May 15, 2020

Located in the southern sector of the national park is an unusual group of giant ancient baobab trees. Their name bestowed on them when they were immortalised by the Victorian artist Thomas Baines, who painted them in 1861. Today the site is almost identical to the painting created by the artist more than 150 years ago. This cluster of trees demands a full-day trip from the national park but is well worth the visit, as they offer great photographic opportunities against the flat white salt pans, which are a highlight in themselves.
