Oldupai gorge is a place for research, studies and tourism. We visited it many times with family and friends and every time you learn something. The local masai will take you for a walk up to shifting sand which is mysterious sand.

Given its historical and cultural significance, I was a bit underwhelmed to find that the Olduvai Gorge Museum was little more than a dusty two room exhibit in the middle of nowhere. The visit required a particularly bumpy off-road ride down what barely equates to...More
