    I loved it because I have an interest in anthropology and this place is like human evolution's Disneyland. If you don't have the slightest curiosity about Australopithecus, you might not find it that exciting. There is a fantastic but small museum here with lots of fossils and artifacts from the Leakeys. A guide will tell you all about the finds that were made here and their impact on our understanding of evolution.

    This is where the Hominid Lucy was found. It is interesting scenery, and a nice lecture, but I wouldn't spend more than an hour there, as there are sooooo many other great things to do.

    We came here to experience the Olduvai Gorge and to see one of the earliest human skulls that was unearthed here. Admission of the Gorge also includes a 20 minute lecture by the docent which we thought was very informative and helped us better understand the origins of this place, and humans.

Description

When returning to Arusha from the Serengeti you can take a short detour to visit this important archeological site and the accompanying small but very informative museum. This 48km long rift valley gorge is often called the Cradle of Mankind. It was here, in the 1930’s, that Louis and Mary Leaky discovered some of the first evidence of Homo Habilis and pre-human tools. Over time, more than 60 specimen of hominids were discovered at this site; this fossil evidence rendered it the most continuous physical record of human evolution
