The sight of these well-preserved ancient footprints (dated at over 120,00 years old) was a wonderful experience but I appreciate it might not be for everyone. There are multiple prints of all sizes and also those of some animals around at the time. I was able to walk alongside and judge the gait and size of our ancestors and imagine them living in this amazing landscape. The area is not well-visited and so we were able to experience this alone with our Maasai guide and spend as much time as we wished exploring the area. We walked up from nearby Lake Natron where we also throughly enjoyed the spectacle of hundreds of lesser flamingo mirrored in the lake.

Theis quick stop to see the footprints in the rocks was unbelievable. From the depths of the old river bed to see the footprints of first man took our breath away.

Like Olduvai gorge, for us it was more seeing the location of this amazing finding. The small museum shows an exact replica, and then you can walk down the hill to see the exact site that is covered with stones. Takes about 3 hr to get there, and the 2 hr drive to Olduvai is very hard and bumpy, though you pass several Masai villages.

Whilst its undoubtedly amazing that a set of 120,000 year old hominid footprints were discovered just a few years ago, they are not presented in the best way. They are in the middle of nowhere along the shores of Lake Natron and the village has surrounded them with an ugly chain link fence with large metal gates to "protect" them. Despite this the guides walk all over them and allow tourists to do so as well. The guides also so little more than turn up, point at them and say "there they are". When questioned they came up with some...unusual theories about why they were there including that they were formed when hominids walked across lava.

Engaresero Footprint site is not known and neither featured by most tour companies but Migunga Adventure Tours & Safaris had it in our programs. Coupled with a trip to Lake Manyara National park and and a visit to The Wa Mbulu tribe we learnt a lot from here. The ruins, the castles remains are just but historical diamond in Tanzania

Go to see the flamingos, the waterfalls and climb or photograph El Doinyo Lensai. I am not sure about the excitement over the footprints personally but you may feel differently.

As a fan of human history I loved taking a step back in time, though there not so much to see. Did not mind the short detour on our way to Serengeti

Seen a lot of varying information about these footprints, some suggesting millions of years old, when homo sapiens did not even exist.

The site is cool to see, but the age of the footprints are more like 20.000 years old. Still impressive though.

This is a scenic area near the shore of Lake Natron, and practically in the shadow of the Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano. To see these clearly human 5,000 to 19,000 year old footprints in the volcanic ash mud was impressive. Definitely worth stopping if you are already visiting Lake Natron to see the flamingos.
