Take an ox cart through spectacular scenery and hundreds of years of botanical history at Avenue of the Baobabs, a red dirt road lined on both sides with ancient baobab trees. The giant trees along this 260 m (853 ft) section of the road draw tourists from all corners of the globe. Some of the sacred trees date back over 800 years; in the past, they stood as part of a larger forest, and early Arab travelers described them as ripped up and placed back into the earth upside-down. Reaching for the skies at 30 m (98 ft), the baobabs have a diameter of up to 11 m (36 ft) and circumference of up to 50 m (160 ft).
