October 7th: Olduvai Gorge and Laetoli:

This morning we we will leave very early and drive to Olduvai Gorge. We will spend half a day at this 14km long deep ravine. The site is internationally recognized for Louis and Mary Leakey's famous discoveries of early humans and magnificent antiquities documenting the evolutionary history of our stone tool-using ancestors, vertebrate fauna, and the environments over the last two million years. (

Our second stop will be Laetoli where we will spend approximately 4 hours. Here we will visit the famous hominin footprints Site G where we will hear from various experts about the challenges associated with conservation of ichnofossil record. We will then visit some animal footprints sites at Localities 7, 11, and 12.

3.6 million years ago in Laetoli, Tanzania, two early humans walked through wet volcanic ash. When the nearby volcano erupted again, subsequent layers of ash covered and preserved the oldest known footprints of early humans. (

After the Footprints we will visit the Maasai commuties where there will time for discussions with the NCA and Esere/Endulen communities on the role and issues surrounding long-term conservation and sustainable use of cultural heritage assets in their area.

After the final visit you will be brought back to again to your hotel in Karatu.

October 8th: Ngorongoro Crater

On this third day we will drive early in the morning to the Ngorongoro Crater floor. The stunning landscape of Ngorongoro Crater combined with its spectacular concentration of wildlife is one of the greatest natural wonders of the planet. Spectacular wildebeest numbers (well over 1 million animals) pass through the property as part of the annual migration of wildebeest across the Serengeti ecosystem and calve in the short grass plains which straddle the Ngorongoro Conservation Area/Serengeti National Park boundary. This constitutes a truly superb natural phenomenon. (

Later in the afternoon we will drive back to Arusha where you will stay the night at Safariland Cottage .

October 9th Departure

Transfer from the hotel to the airport.
