Part of a day touring archaeological sites

The guide was very good and the paths were easy in the heat. Sorry so few people both local and tourists go. Better signage and publicity in hotels would help.

One of the best archaeological attractions I have been to in East Africa. The preserved early man's tools are just awesome. But I think the site is a little under sold. If you are in to pre-historic sites,this one site you must visit while in Kenya.

Kariandusi is a very interesting archeological site, located near lake Elementaita. You will see a vast array of stone tools, situated as discovered during the course of exploration and excavation by Louis Leakey.

This was a really fascinating archaeological dig, Richard Leakey excavated stone tools here. The resident Archaeologist is a pleasure to meet, we thoroughly enjoyed out visit. Highly recommended for families and anyone interested in Anthrologoy, Archaeology and Evolution.
