There is an historical Baobab tree near the confluence of the Olifants and Letaba Rivers (near Olifant's Restcamp), where GR Von Wielligh and company set up their camp number 19. Von Wielligh was one of the original surveyors in the area, and who carved his name on the tree in 1891.

The Von Wielligh Baobab tree can be found about 8km north of Olifants Rest Camp in Kruger Park, next to the S93 gravel road near the junction of the S44.
