Day 2 - Ngorongoro and Olduvai gorge - overnight in Karatu

Upon awakening and well recharged we will reach the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. We will take a leap into the past by stopping at the Olduvai Gorge, an archaeological site where hominid footprints dating back to 3.5 million years ago were found. The entrance to Olduvai Gorge also includes a visit to the Shifting Sands, a magical magnetic sand dune that arrived here from Ol Doinyo Lengai, the sacred mountain overlooking Lake Natron. We will then stop at the footprints of Laetoli, where there is the famous walk of 3 individuals imprinted in the solidified volcanic ash of the nearby Sadiman volcano. The dating takes us back to 3.65 million years ago and shows us that these our extinct ancestors practiced bipedism as we modern men! After we will return to Karatu for the overnight.

After breakfast, early in the morning, we will walk together with a Masai guide on the shores of Lake Natron, the only breeding area of flamingos. We will be enchanted by the colors of the waters of the lake, tending to pink, and by the lunar landscape that will surround us: our gaze can only be immediately captured by the majesty of God’s mountain, Ol Doinyo Lengai, that will rise before us. Moving a little further away from the lake we will see well-preserved footprints left in the mud between 5.000 and 19.000 years ago by Homo sapiens.
