On the way out of the Serengeti National Park, we made a brief stop at the Oldupai Gorge Museum (not Olduvai).
In 2 rooms, we were taking back a few million years - to see the trail of footprints left in stone. The research team has reburied the trail itself, in an attempt to preserve it, but a cast is viewable from the museum. If we heard right, within the gorge, I think they found 2 different species of human (and "Lucy", who was found in Ethiopia.
There is a wall of antlers and skulls in the museum - discovered within the gorge, of animals who are now extinct. Huge antelope horns are the ones I remember more clearly.
It was a nice stop off on our way back to Ngorongoro. It doesn't take much time, and it is a simple museum, but great history was captured here. It was a good way to gain perspective.
