Olduvai gorge

Olduvai gorge

The gorge, located in between the Ngorongoro Maasai lands and the Serengeti wildlife plains, is a deep ravine more than 48 kilometers (30 miles) in length with a weathered monolith where one can clearly trace the strata of succeeding changes in climate over millions of years. This is where the Louis and Mary Leakey excavated evidence of the evolution of mankind through varied distinct layers of different sediments. These show the development of the area from a lake to dry grassland carved by a river and deeply influenced by volcanic activity. Native tours company limited recommend a trip diversion to Olduvai Gorge as a moving enlightening experience not to be missed when you take your life-changing vacation in Serengeti and Ngorongoro.
