One ancient hollow Baobab tree is so large that up to 40 people can shelter inside its trunk. Various Baobabs have been used as a shop, a prison, a house, a storage barn and a bus shelter. The tree is certainly very different from any other.

Polokwane Golf Club
The Polokwane Golf Course is an absolute marvel to play on. Established in 1863, the club enjoys a wealth of tradition and history that few South African golf clubs enjoy.
