A key feature in the timeline of ancient human history, Oldupai Gorge has witnessed millions of years of evolution. Cutting into the Great Rift Valley of East Africa, the deep ravine is widely considered one of the world's most important sites of paleoanthropology and lies within a wider World Heritage Site. Since Mary and Louis Leakey first began excavating here in the mid-20th century, research programs have discovered some of the first used stone tools and traces of social and communal activity. Delve into your ancient ancestral routes, touring the onsite gorge museum and taking a guided walk around this world-famous portion of Serengeti landscape.
