Tanzania is home to Olduvai Gorge one of the most successful archeological sites,
yielding numerous remains and artifacts of early humans. It is here that Doctors
Mary and Louis Leakey discovered East Africa’s earliest known humanoid remains
in 1959. Since then there have been many significant discoveries at the site
and an interesting small museum has been created to display some of the findings.
Tanzania is also home to some fine examples of prehistoric
'rock art', most being found in the central highlands with much of the
area being unexplored. A relatively easy example of this exciting art
to see is in the Gol Mountains near Camp Suyan. Kenya has many sites
throughout the Rift Valley region with a particularly important site
located at Mt. Elgon known as Kakapel Rock Art.
Kenya and Tanzania are home to a glorious selection of birds. We will custom
design a safari with an expert ornithologist if you wish and place you in areas
where you have the best chance of finding the species you most want to see.
Some of our favorite areas include Lake Baringo, Lake
Navaisha and Lake Victoria in Kenya and Tarangire National Park and Lake
Manyara and the Ngorongoro Highlands area in Tanzania.
