It is easy to imagine that this place has not changed in the 1,000,000 years since our ancestors passed their time chipping stones into oval 'hand axes' - there is little else to do unless you subscribe to the idea that this was once a lush lake :-/
Seriously though, this is a truly amazing place brought to life by the Museums of Kenya and a truly amazing find the archaeologists.
The place was dry and looked as though it had not rained since said ancestors had migrated.....making the discovery of cold beer in the next village all the more significant. This was duly delivered by 'boda-boda' for a small finders fee.
The deluxe Banda at 1800 (15 Euro) per night was ok although surprised that the staff had not cleaned / prepared the room since the last visitors, some days before.
Like our primitive forbears you need to be self reliant and prepared, if you crave seclusion this is a great place to stop-over and gives respite from the road which appears also to have existed 1m years ago but in presumably better condition.
