Olduvai gorge Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
The Olduvai (or more correctly Oldupai) Gorge contains some of the most important archaeological sites for our understanding of the history of our species and earlier hominids. The oldest finds date back about 2 mill. years.
Above the gorge there is a museum with competent staff. There is a minor charge for entering the museum area. With a guide it is also possible to travel into the gorge itself.
The name Oldupai comes from the Maasai word for the plant Sansevieria which is particularly common in the area.
