EXPERIENCE A PALEONTOLOGY TRIP TO OLDUVAI GORGE NEAR NGORONGORO
Olduvai Gorge (aka Olduvai) in northern Tanzania is a rich palaeoanthropology site to visit when on a safari-cum-cultural holiday in East Africa. 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. Afro-Vertex Tours & Safaris 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. Paleontologists Wilhelm Kattwinkel and Hans Reck discovered fossil remains in Olduvai of extinct three-toed horses in 1911 and a hominid skeleton in 1913 respectively. But the war interrupted further explorations.
