Oldupai Gorge (Also known as Olduvai Gorge) is a site in Tanzania – Ngorongoro that holds the earliest evidence of the existence of human ancestors.
This ‘Cradle of Mankind’ has yielded abundant fossil material dating back at least two million years. It was here (1959) that Mary and Louis Leakey discovered the remains of Nutcracker Man. Nearby, in Laetoli, (1979) Mary Leakey discovered the footprints of hominids which are estimated to be over three million years old. The excavation sites have been preserved for public viewing. And archeologists still continue to explore the gorge every year for more exposition.
Zanzibar has the world’s best beaches. The shores of Zanzibar are lapped by the Indian Ocean; brilliantly blue and beautifully warm, creating beaches to dream about. The coral sands of the islands are soft, white, and powdery which give a great value compared to more established Indian Ocean islands.
Tanzania tourism activities are now opened.
The Maasai people of Tanzania are well known for their traditional handmade beaded jewellery – it has been an important part of Maasai culture for many years. Almost daily Maasai women set aside time to work on beaded jewellery like colourful necklaces, bracelets, and pendants. It is considered the duty of every Maasai woman to learn the jewellery making craft. Traditionally the beadwork is made by women but is worn by both sexes, and has important cultural significance. The beadwork an individual wears reflects their age and social status.
