Also known as “The Tree of Life”, Stands at a mighty 25 meters tall, challenging the test of time living to be 3000 years old, regarded as the largest succulent plant in the world, the baobab tree is steeped in a wealth of mystique, legend and superstition.

It is a tree that can provide, food, water, shelter and relief from sickness

With their own distinct ecosystem, baobabs swarm with life as they provide shelter and sustenance for various creatures.

Baobabs are very difficult to kill, they can be burnt, or stripped of their bark, but they will just form new bark and carry on growing. When they do die, they simply rot from the inside and suddenly collapse, leaving a heap of fibers, which makes many people think that they don’t die at all, but simply disappear

It is a belief among certain people that spirits inhabit the flowers of the baobab

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.

In a world stripped of dreams, mystery and magic, we believe in the importance to unite and celebrate the goodness of life. Through the psychedelic platform we celebrate the buried legends in the roots of the mighty Baobab, we celebrate the abundance of spirituality, nature and music, we rejoice the healing power of love and unity.

Within the spirit of the Baobab, we invite you all to assemble and bathe in its wisdom, indulge in its mystery, and share the ritual of dance.
