3-Day Extension: Lake Natron Camp

Get off the beaten path and experience a side of Tanzania seen by very few tourists. There is also a chance for children to learn about the evolution of man and get to know and understand the Maasai people. Olduvai gorge is known as the ‘Cradle of Mankind’ and it is possible to add on a trekking expedition either to or from this area incorporating the history of mankind, geology and landscapes spanning 250 million years. You’ll also love visiting the hominid footprints located right near camp. These footprints were actually discovered by members of the camp team and have since been investigated by international scientists who have determined that they could be as old as 100,000 years. This part of the Great Rift Valley is populated by the Maasai people. Maasai bomas spread around the area, but the main central village is few kilometres away to the west at the base of the escarpment. The village is named Engare Sero, which means dappled water. This village gets its name from the river flowing out of the escarpment through a spectacular gorge that is both arid and lush. Take some time out with your guides and visit a local homestead.
