It wasn’t long ago that we knew about this pub hiding out in a giant baobab tree in South Africa. Now we’ve sniffed out the Ali Barbour’s Cave, which is estimated to be aged between 120,000 and 180,000 years, harboring, well, not forty thieves, but a bar restaurant that has operated out of it for the last 30 years. Located near Mombasa in east Kenya, the cave has natural holes that open to the sky in the ceiling. It looks positively magical.
