“Great view, but not much else to see.”

This is a 5 minutes stop, but it still costs you 20 USD and is a short detour. Nice to have been there, but not much to see on-site.

“Very historical”

We loved walking through the museum and reading all about the Leakeys and their research. We did not expect to find a museum like this here.

“Ok for a stop but Overpriced”

Interesting to see.. Beautiful view of the gorge.. Nice way to break up the drive from the Crater to Ndutu.. Just not worth $18 per person.

“Maybe a little small, but the lecture was interesting.”

You should pay a little extra and have a guide take you down for a short visit to the Gorge. You literally stumble on fossils. Fascinating!

“Not Much Here”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

Very near the highway from Ngorongoro Crater to Serengeti and not a bad way to break up the trip. Just not a lot to see.
