Travel photo of the day
A mystery coconut tree, at Mafia Island-Tanzania
I arrived in Mafia town at 8.00 pm and the next day I set for another trip to Bwejuu Island to visit this small village inhabited by at least 1,000 people.
In this village I was shown a coconut palm tree with unique appearance and never existed anywhere else in Tanzania. This tree is referred by locals as a "Mystery Coconut tree". This tree at its top forms a continuous closed cycle. What caused this mystery is unknown?
