Wisdom is like a baobab tree; no one individual can embrace it.
Botanical name: Adansonia digitata
No tree in Africa embodies the spirit of Africa more than the baobab with its bulbous branches and gnarled bark. Otherwise known as Africa’s ‘big tree’, the baobab is revered in African culture for many different reasons.
In ancient times kings, elders and leaders would hold meetings under huge baobabs to discuss matters of great importance. Not only did the trees provide shelter, but the tribal leaders also believed that the spirit of the baobab would always help them make wise decisions.
