Did you know?

Vipingo Ridge's Baobab course is named after the iconic baobab tree, an important multipurpose food tree of the semi-arid and sub-humid zones of sub-Saharan Africa. The long-living baobab tree has a short swollen trunk, wide-spreading branches and a large round canopy. Almost all parts of the baobab are useful for human life, especially the fruit and leaves. The whitish fruit pulp has five times the vitamin C concentration of oranges and is also high in several vital minerals.
