    A bunch of design mentors / instructors hanging out at the end of a safari. The baobap tree here is the tomb of the storytellers(griots), who are the original historians of Africa.
    The tradition was griots have never worked the soil and, as a result, cannot be buried in the ground but under baobap trees instead. The trees were considered useless because of their thick bark, and ironically have become one of the most used symbols of Africa and Senegal.

    Gris-gris are Senegalese good luck charms. In this case, a horse tail hanging out of a tailpipe of a rugged cab. Surprisingly the trunk and the doors stayed shut this time. #awaytravel

    The oldest baopap trees were used to be a burial ground for the great old storytellers.

    @markusnieminen true. Also; they had to stop this tradition due composting bodies killing the trees by blocking the natural nutrients.
